21489 spi slave boot flow control

From the app note:

 

http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/application_notes/EE_177_SHARC_SPI_Slave.Booting.Rev.3.01.07.pdf

 

I see that some processors have a flow control bit when booting in SPI slave mode.

 

The 21489 is not mentioned in the app-note, possibly because the app note came out before the 214xx series.

 

The earlier processors had only a 2-word fifo so flow control was necessary while the boot kernel was doing something that might take some time.

 

Does the 21489 also need flow-control in spi slave boot mode?
