Dmitry suggests to make use of it in the error handling path in case the
command/DMA  timed out.

Which makes sense in general I guess, just to make sure that the state
is properly set. It just isn't entirely trivial to do, since state is
setup during probe, chip detect and timing setup...

I did not plan to make the driver multi chip capable, as I am not aware
of any real hardware using it.

But to properly reset state, we would have to have all the chip settings
stored somewhere...
