The flash controller implemented by the Arm Base platform behaves like
the Intel StrataFlash J3 device, but omits several features. In
particular it doesn't implement a protection register, so "Number of
Protection register fields" in the Primary Vendor-Specific Extended
Query, is 0.

The Intel StrataFlash J3 datasheet only lists 1 as a valid value for
NumProtectionFields. It describes the field as:

	"Number of Protection register fields in JEDEC ID space.
	“00h,” indicates that 256 protection bytes are available"

While a value of 0 may arguably not be architecturally valid, the
driver's current behavior is certainly wrong: if NumProtectionFields is
0, read_pri_intelext() adds a negative value to the unsigned extra_size,
and ends up in an infinite loop.

Fix it by ignoring a NumProtectionFields of 0.

I guess this flash device has never been tested on Linux. The bug showed
up when trying to boot the latest arm64 defconfig, which enabled
CONFIG_MTD_PHYSMAP_OF, on the RevC FastModel. Without this config option
the device isn't probed.

Any progress with this patch ?

FWIW, this fixes boot on few arm64 Arm Ltd FastModels we use for
development including the above mentioned RevC FastModel. So,
