I see two options:
1/ either rename "n25q512a" to "mt25qu512a (n25q512a)" and add the
SPI_NOR_4B_OPCODES
2/ or keep "n25q512a", add SPI_NOR_4B_OPCODES, and add a comment about
re-branding to mt25qu512a.

Which one do you like better? What about you, Vignesh?

yes, send a separate patch for mt35xu02g, as the changes are not related.

No need to wait, I'll trust you. It was better if I could verify the info, but
if we can't, that's it. Just send a different patch for this change.
