I'm using a MacBookPro from late 2016, which features a keyboard and
touchpad that are attached via SPI (spi_pxa2xx_platform), using the
driver from [0].

It seems that with the upgrade to kernel 4.13. CONFIG_SPI has been removed [1].

Any idea what was the motivation behind this change? Was it intentional?

I'm totally capable of compiling my own kernel, but I'd rather spend
my time on other things :)

Could we have CONFIG_SPI back in the stock kernel?


Additional info:
* pacakge: linux-4.13*

Steps to reproduce:
$ zgrep CONFIG_SPI /proc/config.gz
# CONFIG_SPI is not set
This task depends upon
