Han, we really need your feedback on this series since you were the one
complaining that ONFI mode should be checked back after applying a new
mode. Miquel is reworking the framework to mimic what the GPMI driver,
but we need to be sure that you'll accept to transition to the generic
->setup_data_interface() solution.
