I think you'll kill the zylonite board, and I'll nack it if that's the case. At
least that's what happened when I tried to use onfi default values last time in
barebox development.

I can test your changes, but if the specific zylonite nand (ie. nand id 0xba20,
ie. pxa310 embedded flash) gets broken, I'm against the removal of the legacy
timings removal.

And all of this because zylonite is my main vehicle as pxa3xx maintainance.
