great, thank you for confirming this!

I'm looking forward to hear about the test results on your AXG boards
for reference: my board has a SK Hynix H27UCG8T2B (ID bytes: 0xad 0xde
0x94 0xeb 0x74 0x44, 20nm MLC)
I have another board (where I haven't tested the NFC driver yet) with
a SK Hynix H27UCG8T2E (ID bytes: 0xad 0xde 0x14 0xa7 0x42 0x4a, 1Ynm
MLC). if it helps with your analysis I can test on that board as well

many thanks for checking my patches!
