[PATCH 0/5 v3] at91: PMECC: enable PMECC in dt for at91sam9x5ek, at91sam9n12ek

Those patches will enable PMECC in dt parameters for at91sam9x5ek and 

The PMECC driver will check minimum required ecc on ONFI parameter from NAND 

If pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size in dts file is specified, use those two.
otherwise, set those according to NAND flash ONFI parameters.

If the pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size in dts are different with ecc requirement
in ONFI, print out a warning.

For the following compile error:
  ERROR (phandle_references): Reference to non-existent node or label "pinctrl_ssc0_tx"

  ERROR: Input tree has errors, aborting (use -f to force output)
  make[2]: *** [arch/arm/boot/dts/at91sam9g20ek.dtb] Error 2

the fixes are already merged in Linux mainline in v3.8-rc4.

 ea03c81521bde526570e1dec96eaa21fe5ac84a2 (ASoC: atmel-ssc: add pinctrl selection to driver) 

Change logs:
v2: rebase to v3.8-rc3. And wrapped the commit message.

v3: big chages:
  1. reduce the PMECC lookup table mapping. Just the lookup table not whole
     ROM code according to J.C's suggestion.
  2. use simpler strategy to handle pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size:
     * make pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size optional.
     * If pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size are not set, use ONFI ecc parameters.
       otherwise, use those in DTS file.
     * print out a warning if PMECC use different ecc bits or sector size 
       from ONFI ecc parameters.

Josh Wu (5):
  MTD: atmel_nand: avoid to report an error when lookup table offset is
  ARM: at91: at91sam9x5: add DT parameters to enable PMECC
  ARM: at91: at91sam9n12: add DT parameters to enable PMECC
  MTD: atmel_nand: make pmecc-cap, pmecc-sector-size in dts is
  MTD: at91: atmel_nand: for PMECC, add code to check the ONFI
    parameter ECC requirement.
