That worked! I updated the read_flash_data() with the same logic found
in git master for kernel 5.4, looking like this:
diff --git a/drivers/spi/spi-ath79.c b/drivers/spi/spi-ath79.c
index 131e15b6b577..cf0b13a06443 100644
@@ -214,7 +214,7 @@ static int ath79_spi_read_flash_data(struct spi_device *spi,
struct ath79_spi *sp = ath79_spidev_to_sp(spi);
- if (msg->addr_width > 3)
+ if (msg->addr_width > 3 || msg->dummy_bytes != 1 ||
msg->read_opcode != 0x0b)
/* disable GPIO mode */
And that seems to have solved the problem with reading the SFDP.
Hopefully these changes aren't breaking anything else.
