What is the current status of NAND drivers with the ath79 target?
I've found a few posts from the June, 2018 timeframe suggesting that there was work to be done, as well as an inquiry in October, 2018.
The contents of
nand/Kconfig, didn't provide any insight about available NAND drivers for the qca95xx chips (qca9563, of particular interest to me). Yes, my branch is a bit behind, based on commit 62dadcb86c from January 19, 2019.
Edit: I have since found https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/1428 which, in closing comment, states:
But it requires 4.19 to not have to backport pretty much the whole MTD and SPI subsystems_
Please re-spin the patch as soon as we have kernel 4.19 support. The approach was already NAK'ed upstream and I don't see much gain in adding the hack if the next major kernel in OpenWrt will provide a suitable solution.
Still interested in any updates on the topic.
