Didn't really look at the patch yet, but my build tests say:

drivers/mtd/nand/gpmi-nand/gpmi-nand.c: In function ‘gpmi_ecc_write_oob_raw’:
drivers/mtd/nand/gpmi-nand/gpmi-nand.c:1536:2: error: too few arguments to function ‘gpmi_ecc_write_page_raw’
drivers/mtd/nand/gpmi-nand/gpmi-nand.c:1446:12: note: declared here
