[PATCH] mtd: rawnand: Ensure nand_soft_waitrdy wait period is enough

The used way to compute jiffies timeout brokes when
jiffie difference is 1.
Assume that nand_soft_waitrdy is called with timeout_ms==1.
Jiffies are 1000 for example (assume something more like 1000.99
- just before incrementing to 1001).
We compute timeout_ms = 1000+msecs_to_jiffies(1) = 1001.
nand_read_data_op is called for the first time and returns 0.
During the call jiffies changes to 1001 thus "while loop" ends
here (wrongly). Notice that routine was called with expected timeout
1ms but actual timeout used was something between 0...1ms.

Fixes STM32MP1 FMC2 NAND controller which sometimes failed
exactly in this way.
