The patch

   spi: Stop selecting MTD_SPI_NOR for SPI_HISI_SFC_V3XX

has been applied to the spi tree at 

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.  

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] spi: Stop selecting MTD_SPI_NOR for SPI_HISI_SFC_V3XX

By selecting MTD_SPI_NOR for SPI_HISI_SFC_V3XX, we may introduce unmet

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for MTD_SPI_NOR
  Depends on [m]: MTD [=m] && SPI_MASTER [=y]
  Selected by [y]:
  - SPI_HISI_SFC_V3XX [=y] && SPI [=y] && SPI_MASTER [=y] && (ARM64 && ACPI [=y] || COMPILE_TEST [=y]) && HAS_IOMEM [=y]

Since MTD_SPI_NOR is only selected by SPI_HISI_SFC_V3XX for practical
reasons - slave devices use the spi-nor driver, enabled by MTD_SPI_NOR -
just drop it.
