New Revision: 344526

  Resolve a name conflict when both SpiFlash and DataFlash devices are present.
  Both SpiFlash (mx25l) and DataFlash (at45d) drivers create a disk device
  with a name of /dev/flash/spiN where N is the driver's unit number.  If
  both types of devices are present in the same system, this creates a fatal
  conflict that prevents attachment of whichever device attaches second
  (because mx25l0 and at45d0 both try to create a spi0).
  This gives each type of device a unique name (mx25lN or at45dN respectively)
  and also adds an alias of spiN for compatibility.  When both device types
  appear in the same system, only the first to attach gets the spiN alias.
  When the second device attaches there is a non-fatal warning that the alias
  can't be created, but both devices are still accessible via their primary
  names (and there is no need for the spiN name to work for backwards
  compatibility on such a system, because it has never been possible to use
  the spiN names when both devices exist).
