It would take a quite a bit more code changes then that to have the mxc_nand 
driver support more than one NAND chip, not to mention the DT binding. As Uwe 
has indicated on a previous version of this series, ecclayout handling in this 
driver could use some cleanup. This patch just fixes bug, trying to break 
anything else while doing so.

Thanks for reviewing, and for applying the rest of this series.
