At least for the real Atmel parts, only the AT25040 part uses odd (8 +
1 bit) addressing.
AT25M01 uses 3-byte addressing (it needs 17 bits).

So I tend to believe EEPROMs using 16 + 1 or 24 + 1 address bits (with the
extra bit in the instruction byte) do not exist?

Alternatively, we can drop the binding change, i.e. keep on using
address-width = <8> for 512-byte '040...

... and handle it here like:

if (chip->byte_len == 2U << val)
chip->flags |= EE_INSTR_BIT3_IS_ADDR;

However, that would IMHO be a bit confusing, as the "address-width"
property is no longer the real address width, but indicates how many bits
are specified in address bytes sent after the read/write command.
So "address-bytes" = 1, 2, or 3 would be more correct ;-)

Or deprecate this whole "specify parameters using DT properties" business,
and derive them from the compatible value. But that would mean adding a
large and ever growing table to an old driver...

Thoughts?

Thanks again!
