Right, that's what I'm suggesting. It's not so much for the code saving
as for the data saving, allowing device trees that just say "flash chip
X is connected" rather than requiring either the flash chip information
in multiple places in the kernel or (worse) have the commands added to
the DTs of individual boards using the flash chip.
