OK, so I guess that is why we require the width property from the FW and 
can't blindly rely on SFDP.

I'm not sure on that. I don't see anything in the ACPI spec.

I will note that PRP0001+"jedec,spi-nor" compatible DSD seems to be the 
defacto method to describe the SPI NOR-compat part for ACPI - that's 
what I'm using. We could add properties there, but that seems improper.

I'll continue to look....
