Yes. Most of the board specific FLASH driver are error prone, since the code 
and it's error are copied over and over again. This is not maintainable. The 
CFI driver has a very broad test basis and is maintained quite good.

And a new board port with a board specific flash driver that is not needed, 
meaning when CFI compliant FLASH chips are used, will not be accepted 

What FLASH chips are you using?
