kernel: 4.19: fix crash when setting up spi-gpio
If an spi-gpio was specified with num-chipselects = <0> in dts, kernel
will crash:

 Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 32697073

The cause is spi_gpio_setup() did not check if the spi-gpio has
chipselect pins before setting their direction and results in derefing
an invalid pointer.

The bug is spotted in kernel 4.19.72 and does not occur in 4.14.

There is a similar fix upstream in kernel 5.2 in commit 249e2632dcd0
("spi: gpio: Don't request CS GPIO in DT use-case").
