Hi Cyrille, Marek,

Thanks for your suggestions.

Nor->addr_width is assigned in spi_nor_scan in spi-nor.c, and it's not
modified in later process.
Does it means that we will not switch nor between 3Byte address and
4Byte?
So, is it better to check nor->addr_width when do nor initialization?

I agree that SPI controller driver should not check SPINOR_OP_* op codes
like what I do.
I will correct it next version.
