I need to put together a filesystem driver for the flash in the Pico
I think I have a pretty good grasp of what I need of the FileSystem
end of things.
But I am less certain of the peices needed to get from the flash to
the block driver that I assume underly's the FileSystem.
I have enabled MTD, and configured a starting address and size.
I got a signon banner. How can I tell if it has really found my
flash and if it actually knows the type of flash it found - in my
instance Spansion S29GL512N.
I have found some documentation covering details, I think I am more
interested in something that gives a more zoomed out view.
Is anyone aware of a relevant howto ? Maybe some web pages on the
end-end process of going from flash devices to filesystems over flash ?
