I am not aware about other nvmem devices which are used for existing
ONIE supported boards.

As long as you represent this parsing function as some library function,
I do not see any issue.
If any exported symbol is available for this then any nvmem provider
could use it.


Hi Srinivas,

Can I note here that I would like to parse
TLV data from an SPI-NOR device to NVMEM cells.
The same general use case (getting mac-address from OEM data).

Was planning to base my work on this series, as well as

This series is for post-processing nvmem cell data before it gets to consumers.
Are you referring to parsing nvmem cell information (offset, name) in your usecase like:

Are you referring to post-processing nvmem cell data ?

(thanks for pointing that out Srinivas)
