Not really :-). From the SPI bus perspective, there's no difference
between a read/write from/to actual memory blocks or a read/write
reg/param-page, so there must be something different on the controller
side. I think regular transfers should work for anything, which is why
I initially suggested to use that in the ->exec_op() implementation.
If memory accesses are optimized somehow and do not work for all
accesses, then we should keep them for the dirmap implementation.

After reading the sama5d2 datasheet, I have the feeling that the only
difference is the fact that the address is directly extracted from the
AHB window offset when using mem accesses (instead of being taken from
the IAR register), plus the possibility to enable the data
scrambler/randomize.
