No opinion yet - I haven't review them.

What I haven't yet got my head around is this:
Currently this code supports only flash programming through sysfs
interface but extensions shoud be easy to add.
is that really what we want to use sysfs for? As the prime interface
to a device driver (or is it a bus driver?) Didn't we used to use
device nodes for that sort of thing?
