From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

Currently the for-loop using an unsigned int for the loop counter
which is problematic when comparing it to the signed int
gt->gpio_cs_count.  This is an issue because if the signed int is
negative (for example, the call to of_gpio_count failed) then
the negative loop bound is implicitly cast to an unsigned int on
the comparison to loop counter i and will yield a very large value,
eventually causing an array bounds overflow on hw->gpio_cs.

Fix this by simply making the loop counter i a signed int;

Fixes: ca632f556697 ("spi: reorganize drivers")

same here as well you are putting wrapper over a original issue by not 
checking the returned value.
Please fix that in both patches.



Thanks.

Same issue, here as well like your other patch. you are putting wrapper 
over a original issue by not checking the returned value.

Please think about the fixes tags you're applying, this is obviously not
the source of the issue.
