Looks like we can't know for sure the GPMC fclk used at the bootloader
else we could have just printed the GPMC fclk pre and post gpmc settings.

How about this instead?

NOTE: Apart from matching the register setup with the bootloader you also need to
match the GPMC FCLK frequency used by the bootloader else the GPMC timings
won't be identical with the bootloader timings.

Also you might need to build this patch on top of
