OK, that's true. Anyway, I don't have strong opinion on any of this. I
just followed Arnd's hint.

For the memory driver (and MTD NAND as well) which one you prefer:
1. https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200724074038.5597-6-krzk@kernel.org/
2. depends on MACH_INGENIC || MIPS_GENERIC || COMPILE_TEST

?

Best regards,
Krzysztof
