That statement is still true.

Not submitted and merged. :(

To repeat a broken record, the initial libchip concept was implemented
for non-volatile memory.  The dependencies were inverted and the
source has not been restructured so it can be merged.  This driver
would be good to have in the tree because it supports Atmel EEPROM,
some Flash, and battery backed RAM with a unified interface.

If you have one, it could be. :)
