NAND_USE_BOUNCE_BUFFER won't work for us unless we can guarantee that
the bounce buffer will always be 64 Byte aligned, which I don't think
we can.  Another way to do it would be to assign all of our own
buffers, but I'm really not comfortable fiddling with those as there
are a lot of controller specific intricacies which a) I'm not familiar
with and b) no longer have Angus to fire questions off to and/or

So if you don't mind, I'd really rather use Angus' implementation.
It's only an extra couple of lines and Angus has already tested it to
a high level.
