Write operations are triggered using IP commands instead of AHB command.
For Read AHB command is used and in this we are adding the offset when performing memcpy_fromIO operation
memcpy_fromio(op->, (f->ahb_addr + op->addr.val), len);

AHB/IP operations are independent of the way how CS got selected. CS selection depends, e.g. CS1 on the value of register FSPI_FLSHA1CR0 and FSPI_FLSHA2CR0.

Mapping can never going to be smaller than the connected flash size as per discussion with the Board design team and if it's possible by user manually changes the non-soldered part then flash area beyond complete mapping is not accessible.
On LX2160ARDB, with mapping of 256MB, for now we are having 4 flash devices connected with size as 64 MB. If user wants he can have only one single flash with flash size of 256MB.
