Nope, you cannot have two drivers for the same IP (i.e Cadence QSPI)
just to support to different types of SPI memories. This is the reason
why spi_mem_ops was introduced.

Please rewrite this driver over to use spi_mem_ops (instead of using
generic SPI xfers) so that same driver supports both SPI-NOR and
SPI-NAND flashes. Once that's done drivers/mtd/spi-nor/cadence-quadspi.c
can be deleted.

There are few existing examples of spi_mem_ops users in drivers/spi/
(git grep spi_mem_ops) and materials here on how to write such a driver:

As per Mark Brown and your suggestion, I have started adapting cadence-qaudspi driver with spi_mem_ops framework to work
QSPI-NAND/NOR as a generic driver(completely removed the legacy SPI-XFERS), is in progress on Intel LGM SoC.
QSPI-IP on Intel LGMÂ do not have DMAÂ support and also not part of QSPI IP, so couldn't able to validate DMA related.
will adapt the DMA things which are existing in cadence-quadspi.c as it is.

currently TI and Altera SoC's use this Cadence-qspi IP , both are not using DMA as per my understanding (correct me if it is wrong).
confirmed through device tree entry.

what is your opinion on DMA related stuff? also using macronix(QSPI-NOR) flash/Micron(QSPI-NAND).
