For the record, I am not sure it is a great idea to make nand drivers
independent of the nand layer.
By doing that you could change the expected behavior, and introduce bug
difficult to debug.

Why do you need that ? Nand drivers can override callbacks of nand framework.

Maybe because the nand layer call the driver page per page, and  you want to
work with more than one page. But in this case you can extend nand layer.

Or does your controller don't allow sending raw command ?
And in that case all the nand logic is in the nand controller ?
