I need to fix the documentation then.

Well, after a closer look, it's the same, hardware-wise. The offset sets
the corresponding address lines, which are used to select the chip. As
it is currently, "chip-offset" is used for:

 chip->IO_ADDR_R = chip->IO_ADDR_W =
                        fun->upm.io_addr + fun->chip_offset * chip_nr;

and "upm-mar-chip-offset" to set the address lines through the MAR
register when running the command or address patterns:

  mar += fun->upm_mar_chip_offset * fun->chip_nr;

I'm going to remove "upm_mar_chip_offset" and use "chip_offset" instead,
also for the U-Boot version. Thanks for pointing that out.
