It is a new driver, but the hardware it supports is not currently unsupported.
Both Vadivel and Vignesh have stated that this driver merely moves the existing
generic spi driver to the spi-mem interface and should replace the existing
driver.

So please correct me if I'm wrong, but to me it seems like if this driver won't
work on altera, and after merging it the currently working driver will be
removed, altera will be broken.

Regards,
Simon
