Unless I am overlooking something with this series applied
(with or without this patch) the possibilities are:
- no octal bit -> continue as before
- octal bit and vendor callback -> uses octal mode
- octal bit and no vendor callback -> will return an error from
spinand_init_octal_dtr_enable() which will fail the probe (patch 7)

Anyway we have a choice:
- Either we consider the tables describing chips as pure descriptions
  and we can support these chips in mode 1-1-1 (will require changes in
  your series as this is not what you support as far as I understand
  the code)
- Or we consider these tables as "what is currently supported" and in
  this case we just fail if one adds the octal bit without any callback
  implementation.

I think the latter is better for now. We can update this choice later
if needed anyway.
