Yes, it can be modified. Instead of reading endianness property from device tree can be moved to the platform structure nxp_fspi_devtype_data which is linked with the compatible string
{ .compatible = "nxp,lx2160a-fspi", .data = (void *)&lx2160a_data, }

Thanks.

Would send the changes in next version.
