I don't know. You seem to think that it's better to have it in the
front-ends, and I can accept that. I think the "_every_ driver" part is
a bit of an overstatement though, as I would think many drivers are
for fully memory-mapped flashes where this wouldn't be necessary (where,
in fact, looping in the frontend is unnecessary overhead).
