[PATCH 07/13] mtd: rawnand: gpmi: set aggregate ready/busy signalling

The GPMI block by default decouples the ready/busy signal (which is
shared between all chip-selects) to separate internal signals per
chip-select. However, since the gpmi-nand driver uses DMA0 for all
chip-selects, DMA transfers will not be able to see the ready/busy
status for any chip-select other than 0.

Currently, this happens to work because nand_command() ends with an
explicit nand_wait_ready() and the driver only sets up a single command
in a DMA chain. nand_wait_ready() polls for the chip-select specific
ready/busy status bit. Future patches, however, will set up a DMA chain
with several commands, so these will have to wait correctly in the DMA
chain itself.

To fix this, set the GANGED_RDYBUSY bit in the control1 register. This
ties all internal ready/busy signals together, so DMA0 will also see
the ready/busy status of chip selects 1-2-3. It's a bit silly that this
isn't implied in hardware by the DECOUPLE_CS bit.

Tested on an i.MX6Q with two identical chips on CS0 and CS1.
