Understood. I'll fix it in v3. Thanks.

This is supposed to be temporary solution for the baikal,bt1-boot-rom ROM.
The Boot ROM mirror might reflect either an embedded firmware or the SPI flash
directly mapped into the memory. In former case there is no problem, we can
freely read from the Boot ROM region. But in the later case the mirrored region
(memory mapped SPI flash) is not always accessible. If normal Boot SPI
controller is enabled, then the SPI flash mapping isn't accessible (any attempt
will cause a bus-error). In order to fix this we'd need a mutual exclusive lock,
which would disable the SPI controller while the mirrored memory mapped SPI flash
region needs to be accessed. Such mechanism isn't currently implemented, but it
will in be in the framework of my patch created for the SPI subsystem.

My idea was to just provide a dummy callback for now and replace it with normal
IO-methods with mutual exclusive lock-unlocks when the corresponding SPI driver
is accepted.
