[PATCH 4/7] Documentation: mtd: add a DT property to set the latency code of Spansion memory

Both the SPI controller and the NOR flash memory need to agree on the
number of dummy cycles to use for Fast Read commands. For Spansion
memories, this number of dummy cycles is not given directly but through a
so called "latency code".
The latency code can be found into the memory datasheet and depends on the
SPI clock frequency, the Fast Read op code and the Single/Dual Data Rate

+* Spansion NOR flash
+Optional properties:
+- spansion,latency-code : Only used when the "m25p,num-dummy-cycles" property is
+                          set. The Spansion latency code tells the NOR flash
+                          memory the number of dummy cycles to expect for each
+                          Fast Read command. The value to be used is provided by
+                          tables in the memory datasheet and depends on the SPI
+                          clock frequency and on the Single/Dual Data Rate mode.
+                          Then the value of "m25p,num-dummy-cycles" property
+                          should match the (Fast) Read command to be used for
+                          the chosen latency code.
