Thank you for the update.

A closing brace is missing here. This causes a compilation failure.

You previously used cond_resched (via nand_wait_ready) here. Why did you
change it to cpu_relax()?

The variable xnfc is undeclared here. Consider swapping the line with
the next one.

After loading the driver, the device does not work. The dmesg output is:

nand: device found, Manufacturer ID: 0x2c, Chip ID: 0xda
nand: Micron MT29F2G08ABAEAWP
nand: 256 MiB, SLC, erase size: 128 KiB, page size: 2048, OOB size: 64

pl353-nand e1000000.flash: could not scan the nand chip
pl353-nand: probe of e1000000.flash failed with error -28

After trying the driver, the flash chip was bricked. Neither the old
driver nor the uboot-xlnx driver nor the Xilinx fsbl are able to talk to
the chip afterwards. This behaviour persists even after a full power
cycle. I'll try reinitializing the flash chip next. I've only seen this
behaviour once, so there is a slight chance that the cause is something
else.
