"dummy-flash" device tree possible bug?

Diego Sueiro

Hi there,

I'm currently working on porting Zephyr to i.MX7 SoC and I'm facing an error with cmake when it is generating the generated_dts_board.h.
I want to use only the sram and in my dts I removed the "zephyr,flash" property. I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly. If I don't want a flash should I need to set it to a specific entry or just remove the property from the dts?

Error message:
Makefile:854: recipe for target 'cmake_check_build_system' failed

I managed to fix the error with this change:
