Most of cfi_flash is probably usable for a non-cfi flash part.

The cfi detection etc. will not work but perhaps if we preset the 
interface settings from board configuration and do a jedec probe and 
setup some of the timing based on jedec probe we might be able to use 
the cfi flash driver for non-cfi flash as well. This should eliminate 
more custom board drivers. Someone else also was asking if cfi flash 
driver is able to handle a cfi flash and non-cfi flash at the same time. 
Perhaps we can handle that as well.

This week, I might be able to come up with such an extension patch. I do 
not have such an environment to test but with someone taking some time 
doing testing and providing feedback, I can manage to do this.

Best regards,
