+Subject: [PATCH] Revert "mtd: spi-nor: disable protection for Winbond flash at
+ startup"
 
+This reverts commit c6fc2171b249e73745c497b578b417a2946f1b2f.
+
+This commit is breaking read access on at least s25fl064k, but also
+possibly other Spansion flash chips.
+
+Any mtd read seems to succeed, but simply returns a zero-filled buffer.
