Hmm, I have no idea of a good name for the driver if not "gpio-nand". Can you 
suggest one?
As a workaround, I can add a platform device id table to the driver with "ams-
delta-nand" as a supported device name in hope that survives possible future 
driver renaming.

I think the best approach would be to expose NAND data ports of those machines 
as GPIO ports, possibly reusing the "gpio-nand" driver code while creating a 
new GPIO driver for them if "basic-mmio-gpio" occurs inappropriate, and use 
the pure GPIO NAND driver on top.

I'm glad you like it :-)
