As discussed in v1 [1], the datasheet's definition of "3-wire mode" is
_not_ the same as the standard spi-3wire property. I can add that to
the description here to clarify (I hoped changing the enum name was
enough, but perhaps not). Or is there a different property you are
referring to?

That was my first choice, but the datasheet uses the term "normal
mode" to mean not TURBO mode which is something else unrelated to the
SPI mode.

Thanks, I see #daisy-chained-devices now. I missed that before.

Maybe technically possible if CS is inverted on the bus since the line
has to be high to trigger the conversion and during the xfer.
