Subject: Re: [PATCH v3] mtd: spi-nor: Improve reporting for software reset failures

As mentioned in the previous version, this doesn't add any useful information. Please just drop it. That is, just guard the current dev_warn() with "if ret! = - EOPNOTSUPP".

This should be an own patch and you'll have to fix current users of it. For example, there is at least one in spi-nor core. Probably more.
