Yes. You must use exactly one flash driver only.

No. Decide which driver to  use  (cfi_flash  recommended)  and  don;t
configure  the  oither  one  (i. e. edit board/<name>/Makefile not to
build board/<name>/flash.o if you don;t use it).

Ummm... is your board *really* a MPC8260ADS board?

If yes, why are you making  these  changes  -  the  board  should  be
working as is.

If not, why are you meddling with this file  then?  Create  your  own
board configuration, please!
