[PATCH 0/2] spi: dw: Reintroduce optional 16 bit data register I/O

The commit dd11444327ce ("spi: dw-spi: Convert 16bit accesses to 32bit
accesses") globally changed all register access in the dw_apb_ssi driver
to 32 bit access, which breaks data register (FIFO) access on picoXcell

This series introduces a boolean to the core spi-dw driver to indicate
to the core that 16 bit data register access is appropriate, implements
the code that respects that flag and updates the dw-spi-mmio driver to
allow setting this boolean from the device tree.

A binding documentation fix is included in this series.

Prior to applying this change the following error presents on
a picoCell pc3x3 platform:
  spi_master spi32766: interrupt_transfer: fifo overrun/underrun
  m25p80 spi32766.0: error -5 reading 9f
  m25p80: probe of spi32766.0 failed with error -5

With this series applied:
  m25p80 spi32766.0: m25p40 (512 Kbytes)
