The guideline number is from a Marvell Errata document MV-S501377-00,
although this specific change is a guideline not an erratum. You'll need
access to Marvell's extranet (with appropriate NDAs etc) to retrieve it.
We can mention the document reference in the commit message for v3.

We haven't run flash_speed (yet) but anecdotally we've seen no
noticeable performance difference.
