This device duplicate the SPI mode of the sd-card device. The
SPI protocol is better handler in the sd-card, however as the
TYPE_SSI_SLAVE is not an interface, the sd-card can not implement
it easily to be pluggable on a SPI bus. Meanwhile the ssi-sd
device acts as a bridge, but is bitroting. Deprecate it.
