/proc/cpuinfo shows 34.61 BogoMIPS, and
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq tells me 104MHz.
Judging from the clock diagram, there is either 156MHz or 30MHz (for
ring-oscillator mode) applied to the NAND controller.
I've prepared two patches (which will follow to this mail) that
a) make the nand driver aware of frequency changes and
b) report the correct clk rate for RO mode
But unfortunately, they won't solve the problem.
Any other idea?
