The values were up thread a bit but I'll repeat them here

fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: tx 70
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: rx 03
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Extra RX 00
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Transfer done but SPIE_DON isn't set!
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Transfer done but rx/tx fifo's aren't empty!
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: SPIE_RXCNT = 1, SPIE_TXCNT = 32
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: tx 05
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: rx 00
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Extra RX 03
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Transfer done but SPIE_DON isn't set!
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Transfer done but rx/tx fifo's aren't empty!
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: SPIE_RXCNT = 1, SPIE_TXCNT = 32
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: tx 05
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: rx 00
fsl_espi ffe110000.spi: Extra RX 03


The rx 00 Extra RX 03 is a bit concerning. I've only ever seen them with
either a READ_SR or a READ_FSR. Never a data read.
