This is not the correct way to solve 'broken' hardware designs (I assume 
your board has incorrect bootstrap configuration and boots from 32M SPI 
NOR in default 3-byte addressing mode instead of 4-byte or the flash IC 
isn't reset during SOC reset).

I remember discussing this topic at least several times during reviews 
of some MediaTek based boards back in 2018, please see great explanation 
from Mathias here: [0].

Since kernel 4.19 we have an official 'solution' for that, look for 
'broken-flash-reset' property description in [1] documentation and 
deeper explanation in [2].
