I have no further plans with nand_omap_gpmc. Note the driver can switch
the ecc correction type during runtime. We have to do this since the
boot ROM needs a different ecc layout than the rest of the NAND does.
I don't want to lose this feature. Other than that feel free to update
the driver with new features.
