Great, this all looks good to me. I suggest that on top of this
we add minimal devicetree binding that does not even attempt to
deal with the timings yet.

Then once the minimal devicetree binding is in place, we can
call the current GPMC timing functions using the compatible flags
and auxdata in the gpmc.c driver.

That way we get all the legacy boards booting with GPMC support
for smsc911x etc, and can even remove some less used board-*.c

Then we just add the generic GPMC timings when we're happy with
