[U-Boot-Users] .../board/fads/flash.c confuses me - give me a hint

I can return your question: why does the CFI exist?. Have a look at the u-boot-1.1.2/board/ppm8260/strataflash.c that is an example for a port that "only" uses the cfi_flash.c.

Good luck

Ahh... thanks for the hint. But anyway... the u-boot readme says an own 
flash.c was a minimum requirement for a port. If the generic driver 
works, why do people write customs flash.c's at all? All modern flash 
chips seem to support CFI anyway. Is there an example for a port that 
"only" uses the cfi_flash.c so I can take a look on it?
