We are working on more mainline support for all kinds of peripherals for
the MX23 and MX28, but until now, nobody has started with NAND yet.

As far as I remember, the FSL code was really, really uggly, so it will
probably need an experienced look at the design. I suppose that there
will be not much activity over the holidays, so if you want to go ahead,
keep the list informed.
