Sorry for late reply. I think I mixup the serial nand support and
QPIC_V2.0 support.
Only patches [2/5] mtd: rawnand: qcom: Add initial support for qspi nand
and [5/5] mtd: rawnand: qcom: Add support for serial training. are for
nand. Other patches [3/5] mtd: rawnand: qcom: Read QPIC version &
[4/5] mtd: rawnand: qcom: Enable support for erase,read & write for
serial nand.
are to support QPIC_V2.0. In QPIC_V2.0 onwards some additional registers
and features
got added. QPIC_NAND_READ_LOCATION_LAST_CW_n register got added to read
last code word.
Page scope read & multi page read feature got added to read single and
pages. QPIC_NAND_AUTO_STATUS_EN register got added to read status in
page scope read
& multi page read etc.

I will take out QPIC_V2.0 support patches and will push it separately.
For serial nand support few lines of codes are there around 50 lines
to initalize QPIC serial block and serial training code. So can I put
this as a separate file inside drivers/mtd/nand/raw/qpic_serial_nand.c.
Would it be ok ?
Because there is no dedicated spi controller for serial nand. QPIC
controller having
one serial interface block to deal with serial nand device.
