Patches 1 to 5 look good to me, though there is a new spi-nor driver
since you sent this. Can you rebase/fixup?

I posted some comments for these. I get the feeling that patch 6 is

not 100% sure on the approach for patch 7, since it's not clear whether
the responsibility lies in the SPI layer or in MTD.
