I tried this, both in the device's and in the controller's node. But it
didn't work. However, as described, I didn't expect it to work, because
there is no code present to handle "spi-bits". At least not in 3.10.

Am I missing something? Otherwise, maybe something of the tree that you
are talking about is missing from mainline still?

Thanks in advance,
