While we're at moving things around, I think it'd make sense to move
all '[DRIVER SPECIFIC]' fields (which are actually SPI NOR controller
driver specific fields) to a separate struct:

struct spi_nor_controller_ops {
int (*prepare)(struct spi_nor *nor, enum spi_nor_ops ops);
void (*unprepare)(struct spi_nor *nor, enum spi_nor_ops ops);
int (*read_reg)(struct spi_nor *nor, u8 opcode, u8 *buf, int len);
int (*write_reg)(struct spi_nor *nor, u8 opcode, u8 *buf, int len);
ssize_t (*read)(struct spi_nor *nor, loff_t from,
size_t len, u_char *read_buf);
ssize_t (*write)(struct spi_nor *nor, loff_t to,
size_t len, const u_char *write_buf);
int (*erase)(struct spi_nor *nor, loff_t offs);

struct spi_nor {
const struct spi_nor_controller_ops *controller_ops;
