My understanding of the binding had been that exactly one of the devices
on the link would have each master flag set and the code was parsing
both devices together in order to come up with the setting.  Obviously I
didn't check the code closely enough here.  It seems that the Renesas
devices actually do this, though just due to a bug in the master/slave
handling.  The patch you posted would essentially implement that
(without validating the settings on the CPU side, but that could be

The above suggestion would also work though it *is* a change in the
binding and right now we don't have code for it.  We need something here
very soon, the merge window is going to open shortly and we ought to
avoid having the problematic code in v3.15 if we can - indeed I'd really
prefer to get something into v3.14 if possible (though this patch
doesn't apply cleanly there and it's *very* late).
