It seems to me that for older non-CFI AMD devices, it shouldn't be too
hard to use the cfi driver, intercept execution in flash_detect_cfi()
or flash_get_size(), fill in the flash_info_t structure appropriately
for the device, and continue on with most of the code being none the
wiser about what happened.
