Perhaps it would make sense build it on top of SPI interface. This way
one could read registers of other SPI peripherals (MMC cards etc).
I'm not sure how useful it can be. Anyway, implementing that for
dataflash seems pretty straightforward, so I'll code it.

It would be good to get at45.c patch merged first. It will make
maintaining changes much easier.
