Alternatively you can also try the attached patch, which does also
change the SPI clock frequency but allows the user to specify the
frequency. See commit note for details. This one is untested but
similar to the other one and simple enough that i think it is quite
safe for you to test. You seem to be able to recover from failing
boots. Do you have an external programmer or spare chips?

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
