- Drop patches:
"mtd: spi-nor: Move clear_sr_bp() to 'struct spi_nor_flash_parameter'"
"mtd: spi-nor: Rework the disabling of block write protection"
and replace them with the RFC patch:
"mtd: spi-nor: Rework the disabling of block write protection"
- rename spi_nor_legacy_init_params() to spi_nor_info_init_params()
- rebase patches and send them all in a single patch set.

- addressed all the comments
- all flash parameters and settings are now set in 'struct
spi_nor_flash_parameter', for a clearer separation between the SPI NOR
layer and the flash params.

In order to test this, you'll have to merge v5.3-rc5 in spi-nor/next.
This patch set depends on
'commit 834de5c1aa76 ("mtd: spi-nor: Fix the disabling of write protection at init")

The scope of the "mtd: spi-nor: move manuf out of the core" batches,
is to move all manufacturer specific code out of the spi-nor core.

In the quest of removing the manufacturer specific code from the spi-nor
core, we want to impose a timeline/priority on how the flash parameters
are updated. As of now. the flash parameters initialization logic is as

a/ default flash parameters init in spi_nor_init_params()
b/ manufacturer specific flash parameters updates, split across entire
spi-nor core code
c/ flash parameters updates based on SFDP tables
d/ post BFPT flash parameter updates

With the "mtd: spi-nor: move manuf out of the core" batches, we want to
impose the following sequence of calls:

1/ spi-nor core legacy flash parameters init:

2/ MFR-based manufacturer flash parameters init:

3/ specific flash_info tweeks done when decisions can not be done just
on MFR:

4/ SFDP tables flash parameters init - SFDP knows better:

5/ post SFDP tables flash parameters updates - in case manufacturers
get the serial flash tables wrong or incomplete.
The later can be extended to nor->manufacturer->fixups->post_sfdp()
if needed.

Setting of flash parameters will no longer be spread interleaved across
the spi-nor core, there will be a clear separation on who and when will
update the flash parameters.

Tested on sst26vf064b with atmel-quadspi SPIMEM driver.
