All the EDB93xx boards also have an spi flash device.  And there are a
couple drivers in mainline that can be used.  Depending on the actual spi
flash device: drivers/mtd/m25p80.c, drivers/mtd/sst25l.c, or 

There are a couple patches floating around to add the spi flash support
to the edb93xx platform init but nothing is merged yet.

BTW, you really should remove the or-gate's that Cirrus used with the spi
chip-selects to logically-and the SFRM and GPIO signals.  The SFRM signal
deasserts when the spi fifo's empty which could cause a chip-select 
deassertion to the chip in the middle of a transfer.  For the spi flash,
this breaks any read's from the device.  Just connect the gpio line
directly to the chip-select of the device.
