Personally I'd use an AVR to drive it & forward stuff to its UART. Or
the Obdev USB stack for AVR -- check out the USBasp programmer, that
is effectively a "USB to SPI" adapter. I'm using that USB software a
fair bit as I don't have a computer with a real UART (non-USB I mean)
anymore... progress, eh.
