Yes, we know what CS-dont-care mean, what we want to know is whether
your chip supports that or not. And if it supports it, I don't
understand why you have a problem when asserting/de-asserting on each
->exec_op() call.

That's not what we were looking for. We want to know what happens when
the CS line is de-asserted in the middle of a NAND operation (like read
param page). I'd expect the NAND to retain its state so that the
operation can be resumed when the CS line is asserted again. If that's
not the case that means the NAND is not really CS-dont-care compliant.

It's completely orthogonal to the multi-chip feature, so yes, it should
work just fine.

No, the user is not in control of the CS pin, only the driver can do
that.

Can you please point us to the datasheet of the NAND you're testing, or
something close enough?

Thanks,

Boris
