Hm, so now we have the physmap_of driver which uses a function exposed
by the gpio-addr-flash module, but this module is also declaring a
platform_driver. It's probably working fine, but it's hard to follow.

So, I decided to give it a try and started to rework a bit the physmap,
physmap_of and gpio-addr-flash drivers. Here is the result [1] (it's
only been compile tested). With this rework we now have a single
driver which supports DT and !DT init and can also use GPIOs to
extend the physical memory range in case it's not large enough to
address the whole memory dev.

Let me know what you think of this approach.

Regards,

Boris
