Hmm, unfortunately, it's usage is not clearly documented in mtd-physmap.txt, so I never thought of this parameter.  And IMHO the problem goes further - basically *any* chip which is attached to the LPB can be affected by this problem, so it might be better to have a more general approach like a "chip select property".

Cheers, Albrecht.
