Thanks for the review! Yeah, in Chrome OS we do a crazy amount of SPI
transfers since our EC and security chip are connected over SPI and we
seem to pile a whole lot of stuff into the EC. This means we keep
coming back to the SPI controller again and again when profiling
things. I'm hoping that we'll eventually be able to get DMA enabled
here, but until then at least it's nice to make the FIFO transfers
better...
