Well, I guess the version that was merged:

|commit c4dfa25ab307a277eafa7067cd927fbe4d9be4ba
|Author: Alban Bedel <albeu at free.fr>
|Date:   Tue Nov 13 15:01:10 2018 +0100
|    mtd: add support for reading MTD devices via the nvmem API
|    Allow drivers that use the nvmem API to read data stored on MTD devices.
|    For this the mtd devices are registered as read-only NVMEM providers.
| >>>We don't support device tree systems for now.<<<
