2014.1 Vivado HW_Manager - Micron G18 flash is being renamed with the MT28GU part marking

Description

Starting in Vivado 2014.1 the new M28GU name will replace the old G18 name.  

This is purely a top part marking change. 

The programming algorithms are the same for these two parts. 

If you have a G18 flash on your board, selecting the M28GU part marking will result in successful configuration.

Solution

This affects the 256Mb, 512Mb, and 1Gb densities.

Micron has changed the name for the G18s.  

Below is the mapping to the old name:
