I just noticed the info structure has a flash_id field which the comment 
says it is for combined manufacturer id (ms 16-bit) and device id (ls 16-bit).

However, for CFI driver the value stored there is FLASH_MAN_CFI. I can get 
rid of that and store the actual flash id but I will have to get rid of the 
checks in the driver that verifies the field to be FLASH_MAN_CFI.
