Is the linux-aspeed community aware of this?  Are you saying you don't want to
take fixes for their driver into the MTD tree?  Can it be pulled into the Aspeed

I'm not personally going to be able to get to it for at least the next 3 months.

It looks like we don't have a dedicated maintainer for this driver other than
Joel by nature of him being listed as the maintainer of "ARM/ASPEED MACHINE
SUPPORT".  I'm not sure if Aspeed themselves are planning on doing the necessary
refactoring here.

Joel, are you aware of this driver using a deprecated implementation?  Were
there anyone planning to do the reworks that you are aware of?  I'd like to get
this fix at least into the OpenBMC kernel tree because I'm seeing this fail in
the real world.
