I think the best place depends on how you plan to use the sram
interface. If all memory behind the aemif is handled by mtd, I would
put the entire driver somewhere in the mtd infrastructure.

If you want it to provide endpoint devices that are handled by
distinct subsystems in Linux, I would make it an mfd multifunction
device and make the common code a driver that scans the connected
memories in order to register its child devices for each of the
