Using only 6 bytes as golden pattern seems fragile, but you are aware of
that, as I see that you chose to read the ID 10 times to make the
decision whether the tap is valid or not. Other option (which is not
perfect) is to use SFDP data as golden pattern. If I remember
correctly, JESD216 suggests to use the Read SFDP cmd at 50 MHz, so it
won't help you much. In practice SPI NOR uses the Read SFDP command at
the flash's maximum speed and we haven't seen problems. But better would
be to use some flash OTP data maybe? I remember Pratyush has submitted a
phy calibration series in the past, I haven't had the chance to read his
proposal. Did you? How's your proposal different than his?
