SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] mtd: spi-nor: When a flash memory is missing do not report an error

No. The disagreement is what should happen if the DT says there is
a device but there isn't. Which right now is an error and it should
stay that way. Your hardware description says there is a flash
but it cannot be probed, so it is an error. What about a board
which has an actual error and the flash isn't responding? You
trade one use case for another.

Also I've looked at the PHY subsystem and there, if a PHY is described
in the DT but isn't there, the following error will be printed:
dev_err(&mdio->dev, "MDIO device at address %d is missing.\n", addr);

And that is for a bus which can even be automatically be
probed/detected.
