Hi,

On Octal DTR flashes like Micron Xcella or Cypress S28 family, reads or
writes cannot start at an odd address in 8D-8D-8D mode. Neither can they
be odd bytes long. Upper layers like filesystems don't know what mode
the flash is in, and hence don't know the read/write address or length
limitations. They might issue reads or writes that leave the flash in an
error state. In fact, using UBIFS on top of the flash was how I first
noticed this problem.

This series fixes that problem by padding the read/write with extra
bytes to make sure the final operation has an even address and length.
More info in patches 5 and 6.

Patches 1-3 fix some existing odd-byte long reads. Patch 4 adds checks
to disallow odd length command/address/dummy/data phases in 8D-8D-8D
mode. Note that this does not restrict the _value_ of the address from
being odd since this is a restriction on the flash, not the protocol
itself.

Patch 4 should go through the SPI tree but I have included it in this
series because if it goes in before patches 1-3, Micron MT35XU and
Cypress S28HS flashes will stop working correctly.

Tested on TI J721E for Micron MT35 and on TI J7200 for Cypress S28.

Changes in v2:
Collect R-bys and cosmetic fixes. No functional changes. See the patches
for detailed changelog.
