In that case, I am thinking to design as follows, which splits into generic independent code.
Let me know, if you have any concerns or inputs.

I will parsing code from nand_onfi_detect function and move it to mtd/nand/onfi.c.
Also, I will move functions like sanitize_string, nand_bit_wise_majority, onfi_crc16, and 
any other generic info to mtd/nand/onfi.c.

Thanks,
Shiva
