To select the optimal number of dummy cycles we need to know what speed 
the controller is running at, not the other way around. The flash would 
always set the top speed to its maximum (say 200 MHz). But if the 
controller is only capable of running at 50 MHz, you will end up wasting 
dummy cycles. I don't see any API to communicate speed from controller 
to flash.
