I have no sun6i hardware to test with.

This is an advisory limit you can query and it better be smaller
rather than unreliable. The hard limit in the driver is still
SUN6I_FIFO_DEPTH (which is 128 bytes on sun6i).

You can test his without any actual SPI device. Unused pins you can
multiplex as SPI suffice.
