Do you have spi flash on Marvell 88F6281 platform?

Dear Sir.

I have a problem for use spi flash on mv6281 board.

spi flash
spansion FL128PIFL

linux kernel
ver 2.6.34

arch/arm/plat-feroceon/mv_drivers_lsp/mv_mtd/sflash.c::sflash_probe_init() are called and this api called register_mtd_chip_driver() with struct sflash_chipdrv.

sflash_chipdrv, see below.
 89 static struct mtd_chip_driver sflash_chipdrv = {
 90   .probe    = sflash_probe,
 91   .destroy  = sflash_destroy,
 92   .name   = "sflash",
 93   .module   = THIS_MODULE
 94 };

I'm expect will call sflash_probe(). But, is not called.
And can't find spansion FL128PIFL driver on linux source.

1. Why do not called sflash_probe()
2. How can get driver for spansion FL128PIFL

Plase help.

Thank you

Is this a new device? Your kernel is 4 years old.
