I think I know what might be the issue. on cfi_cmdset_002.c
cfi_amdstd_reset can be called in parrallel to cfi_amdstd_destroy.

maybe we should call
unregister_reboot_notifier(&mtd->reboot_notifier);
before
cfi_amdstd_reset(mtd)

need to try that on real hw with some strategical printfs :P. But that
will ahve to wait til Monday

Cheers
