Yes, and I considered it. But it didn't make much sense to me to
introduce an extra member in struct spi_nor just to make this call in
some other function later.

Why exactly do you think doing this here is bad? The way I see it, we
avoid carrying around an extra member in spi_nor and this also allows
flashes to change the read settings easily in a post-sfdp hook. The
4bait parsing function does something similar.

What are the benefits of doing it otherwise?

Note that I did remove HWCAPS selection from here, which did seem like a
sane idea.

The problem is that we don't know what speed the controller is driving
the flash at, and whether it is using Data Strobe. BFPT tells us the
maximum speed of the flash based on if Data Strobe is being used. The
controller can also drive it slower than the maximum. And it can drive
it with or without DS.

So, we have to be conservative and just use the dummy cycles for the
maximum speed so we can at least make sure the flash works, albeit at
slightly less efficiency. I hard-coded it to 20 but I suppose we can
find it out from the Profile 1.0 table and use that (though we'd have to
round it to an even value to avoid tripping up controllers). Will fix in
next version (or, Tudor if you're fine with fixup! patches, I can send
that too because I suspect it will be a small change).
