Hi Stefan,

sorry about that. Yesterday I sent the patch to myself and it 
was not line wrapped. Now I learned that this is a feature of 
our famous M$-MUA, which does line wraps in plain text messages, 
when sending to "Internet addresses".
I will fix this by using a real MUA.

As i did not find the new type of flash in the current source tree, 
I submitted my changes. This changes are minimal (in terms of size 
and function) for me, which does not mean that they are optimal 
for someone who is more into u-boot.
