With this patch in place, qemu emulations with is25wp256 fail to
instantiate the flash. Specifically, this affects the qemu sifive_u
emulation. The resulting error message is:

spi-nor spi0.0: BFPT parsing failed. Please consider using SPI_NOR_SKIP_SFDP when declaring the flash
spi-nor: probe of spi0.0 failed with error -22

qemu command line:

qemu-system-riscv64 -M sifive_u -m 512M \
     -no-reboot -kernel arch/riscv/boot/Image -snapshot \
     -drive file=flash.8Vtb7,format=raw,if=mtd -bios default \
     -append "root=/dev/mtdblock0 mtdparts=spi0.0:- console=ttySIF0,115200 earlycon" \
     -nographic -monitor none

Reverting this patch fixes the problem.
