Subject[PATCH 1/2] mtd: spi-nor: When a flash memory is missing do not report an error
Date
It is normal that devices are designed with multiple types of storage,
and only some types of storage are present.

The kernel can handle this situation gracefully for many types of
storage devices such as mmc or ata but it reports and error when spi
flash is not present.

Only print a notice that the storage device is missing when no response
to the identify command is received.

Consider reply buffers with all bits set to the same value no response.
