Subject[PATCH] Add support for flag status register on Micron chips
From: Graham Moore <>

This is a slightly different version of the patch that Insop Song
submitted (!%20de).

I talked to Insop, and he agreed I should submit this patch as a follow-on to his.

This patch uses a flag in the m25p_ids[] array to determine which chips need
to use the FSR (Flag Status Register).

Rationale for using the FSR:

The Micron data sheets say we have to do this, at least for the multi-die 512M
and 1G parts (n25q512 and n25q00). In practice, if we don't check the FSR
for program/erase status, and we rely solely on the status register (SR),
then we get corrupted data in the flash.

Micron told us (Altera) that for multi-die chips based on the 65nm 256MB
die, we need to check the SR first, then check the FSR, which is why the
wait_for_fsr_ready function does that. Future chips based on 45 nm 512MB die
will use the FSR only.
