Hmmm ... it seems odd to put the commands for setting async in the set
sync. I see what you are doing but surely someone should call set async
and the set sync.

I am just suggesting that you place the call to set_async_mode in the
gpmc_onenand_setup() instead of the gpmc_onenand_init() and remove the
calls from set_sync (like you have done). So I don't see that these
would configure the GPMC twice.
