Do you really think  this  is  needed?  I  think  that  the  existing
dataflash  implementation  (for  the AT91RM9200) does not require any
NOR flash either, and it does not need to do this.

If things are interdependent on such a level it's  probably  best  to
fix  this  first and then submit everything again, telling me to drop
the previous set of patches.

But then, your patches should not be dependent on each other in  such
a way in the first place.
