Hm, let's wait for Mika's feedback on this one. BTW, can you please Cc
him on you other spi-nor/intel patches and prefix your patches with the
driver name ('mtd: spi-nor: intel: ') so that we know where the changes
are made (without this prefix it looks like you're touching core files)?

Thanks,

Boris
