CONFIG_SPI_GPIO: GPIO-based bitbanging SPI Master

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SPI_GPIO:

Help text

This simple GPIO bitbanging SPI master uses the arch-neutral GPIO interface to manage MOSI, MISO, SCK, and chipselect signals. SPI slaves connected to a bus using this driver are configured as usual, except that the spi_board_info.controller_data holds the GPIO number for the chipselect used by this controller driver.

Note that this driver often won't achieve even 1 Mbit/sec speeds, making it unusually slow for SPI. If your platform can inline GPIO operations, you should be able to leverage that for better speed with a custom version of this driver; see the source code.
