I will admit that [since you seem to incline towards this approach], I am
also inclined to consider it over the spi-mode-conv driver.
And also since you're saying that the driver would be harder to achieve.

I'll see about an implementation for this flag and come back for a review
[on it].
[Until then] I also owe you some more "delay_usecs" cleanup in other
