some speculations, as guessing is cool:

wild guess: This disables an chipset-internal SPI interface used for a
read-only mapping of the flash rom to the processor address space. But
it does not abort a transaction if it is running.

wild guess: This bit indicates that the chipset-internal SPI is idle.
>   - Clear bit 1 in the bitbang register
wild guess: This bit enables bit-bang access to the SPI interface.
