Which spi_write_then_read collapses into a single transfer.
Still I try to run now 4 distinct devices for my testing and
I believe the enc28j60 is one of those devices that does that
and I have not seen an issue there during typical loads...
Obviously there are some devices that are easier to load than
others to trigger such a situation.
It really just shows when running some transfers a lot of times...
So the move to gpio-cs should be on our priority list.
I will come up with a generic approach that allows also to set native
CS if needed... (as sketched in an earlier mail)
