Hi,

Here is the SPI NOR PR for 4.17. As you can see, there's not much
material for this release, mainly due to lack of time on Cyrille's side
which led him to take the decision to resign from his maintainer role
(which is why I'm the one sending this PR).

Sorry for those who didn't get their patches merged in this release and
those who had their fixes delayed (which is even worse).

We (Marek, Richard and I) will try to take over the maintenance of the
spi-nor sub-subsystem, but it's likely to be a bit laggy for a few more
weeks. For those who have urgent spi-nor fixes pending, don't hesitate
to ping us.

Regards,

Boris

Since I have been contributing/reviewing for a couple of months
(essentially around the nand/ subdirectory), I would like to help you
focus on 'other' MTD tasks by joining officially Boris in the NAND
subsystem as co-maintainer and being CC'ed on these patches.

I know I'm still pretty new to this community but it seems that even
by being 4 official maintainers, some of you need more air, that I
could partially bring.

I am open to any comment.

Thank you,
Miquèl

It would be appreciated, indeed. Send patch to add yourself in
MAINTAINERS and we'll see if other MTD maintainers are okay with that.

Thanks for proposing your help.
