I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anybody I could contact  to  try  to
sort out their problems with me?

Stop, please be fair. Grant is not to blame here.

The culprit is me. When the Dataflash  code  was  added,  I  did  not
really  know  what DataFlash is, and I did not take the time to study
the code thoroughly enough to understand all the implications. It was
my fault that this code was ever added to the U-Boot tree. If  I  had
raised my concerns earlier, all of this would have been much easier.

But I did not understand this then, and now we have the mess. But this
mess is my fault, not Grant's.

Grant is trying to help cleaning up.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
