On an imx6q-sabresd, which only has one SPI chip-select via GPIO, this
makes the SPI core to understand that it has 4 chip selects.

ctlr->num_chipselect = max_t(int, nb, ctlr->num_chipselect);
It is 4 now after your patch, it was 3 after 8cdcd8aeee28 ("spi:
imx/fsl-lpspi: Convert to GPIO descriptors") and 1 before such commit.
Couldn't we just remove master->num_chipselect from the spi-imx.c driver?
