Fix another SB600 SPI corner case
SB600 SPI has an off-by-one error during read, and that hardware issue is not documented anywhere yet. r661 tried to work around this, but the fix had unpleasant side effects. The new workaround only triggers if readcnt is nonzero, eliminating all possible interactions with write-only commands.
