The general-purpose media interface(GPMI) controller is a flexible interface
to up to several NAND flashs.

The Bose Ray-Choudhury Hocquenghem(BCH) module is a hardware ECC accelerator.

With the help of BCH, the GPMI controller can choose to do the hardware ECC or

This driver is a _pure_ MTD NAND controller driver now.

The driver depends on another patch set, you can find them at :

        [2] http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-mtd/2011-April/035032.html
        [3] http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-mtd/2011-April/035033.html

Test environment:
	Using imx23 and imx28 boards with the rootfs in the nand flash.
	The command line is:
	# console=ttyAMA0,115200 mtdparts=gpmi-nfc-main:20m(boot),-(user) ubi.mtd=1 root=ubi0:rootfs0 rootfstype=ubifs gpmi_debug_init

v5 --> v6:
	[0] split out the IMX23/IMX28 arch code to separate patches.
	[1] fix bug : missing empty item in the end of platform_id array.
	[2] inconsistent identation.
	[3] others

v4 --> v5:
	[0] rename the files.
	[1] fix PM bug
	[2] remove the rom_helper code, and move the necessary initialization code
		to the main file.
	[3] change the macros from CPU_IS_* to GPMI_IS_*
	[4] remove the default partition layout init code. revert back the 
		partition parsing command line code.
	[5] others

v3 --> v4:
	[0] use the nand_ids{} as the nand database, drop my own database.
	[1] remove the patch for DMA enginer, Shawn will submit his own version.
	[2] use the platform_id to distinguish different Archs.
	[3] fix the strange coding style.
	[4] others.

v2 --> v3:
	[0] merge the imx23 and imx28 into one file(including the header file).
	[1] remove the unuse registers in the headers.
	[2] fix DMA bugs
	[3] add bus width field to nand_attr{}
	[4] others

v1 --> v2:
	[0] merge the common files into the gpmi-nfc-main.c
	[1] change the code to get the clock.
	[2] remove the timing in the nand_device_info{}
	[3] fix DMA errors
	[4] add the nand_device_info.[ch] to generic code
	[5] use the chip->onfi_version for the ONFI nand
	[6] useless init
	[7] others

Huang Shijie (3):
  MTD : add the common code for GPMI controller driver
  MTD : add support for imx23 and imx28
