Viresh KUMAR - Oct. 1, 2010, 11:55 a.m.
From: Shiraz Hashim <shiraz.hashim@st.com>

SPEAr platforms(spear3xx/spear6xx/spear13xx) provide SMI(Serial Memory
Interface) controller to access serial NOR flash. SMI provides a simple
interface for SPI/serial NOR flashes and has certain inbuilt commands
and features to support these flashes easily. It also makes it possible
to map an address range in order to directly access (read/write) the SNOR
over address bus. This patch intends to provide serial nor driver support
for spear platforms which are accessed through SMI.

David,

Is this patch OK? Actually i have sent this patch as part of a big patchset.
And my whole patchset is on hold untill i get this acked.
Please see if you can get some time to review this patch.

Would be simpler if you can separate mtd pieces.
