Thanks for the clarification, Please kindly see the below discussion b/w
Vignesh and Dinh in the earlier mail chain.

[Vignesh]  The legacy driver under drivers/mtd/spi-nor will be removed 
as we cannot
support both SPI NOR and SPI NAND with single driver if its under
spi-nor. New driver should be functionally equivalent to existing one.
So I suggest you test this driver on legcay SoCFPGA products.

[Dinh]   I don't have the original patch series, but will monitor going 
As long as the new driver does not break legacy SoCFPGA products that
use the cadence-quadspi driver then it should be ok.
