The newly broadcom qspi driver in drivers/spi produces a build
warning when CONFIG_MTD is disabled:

include/linux/mtd/cfi.h:76:2: #warning No CONFIG_MTD_CFI_Ix selected. No NOR chip support can work. [-Werror=cpp]

I had suggested a workaround earlier, but Cyrille Pitchen explained
that actually the broadcom qspi is broken here and needs to be
fixed, see the lenghthy reply in patchwork.

As nothing has happened on that driver, this tries to at least
avoid the build failure, by marking the driver as broken unless
CONFIG_MTD is enabled. Also, I add a WARN_ON_ONCE runtime
that triggers when the spi-nor framework and the driver disagree
about the command opcode, which was one of several issues that
Cyrille pointed out.

My patch does not attempt to fix any of the actual bugs though,
it just tries to avoid the build error while highlighting the
problems. Ideally, someone would step up to create a tested
fix. If that doesn't happen, please merge my version instead
as a workaround.

Ok, thanks a lot!

Do you think your fix will be applicable to stable backports, or should we
add a simple dependency first for the stable kernels and remove that
dependency again with the proper fix?

That's great - any ETA?  I'm tempted to apply Arnd's patch for now to
help anyone who runs into problems with it, your fix could then revert
it when you've got a proper fix.

Please don't top post, reply in line with needed context.  This allows
readers to readily follow the flow of conversation and understand what
you are talking about and also helps ensure that everything in the
discussion is being addressed.

The  fix would be applicable to stable backport, we don't need to add
a dependency.
