This patch extends the nandtest to allow multiple read & check iterations.
Repeating the read-and-check multiple times, stresses driver's ECC engine and
has been useful to discover poor stability in an old (not mainline) OMAP2 NAND

The new 'reads' parameters, allows to simulate a more realistic workload:

  1. erase block
  2. write data
  3. read and check (N times)

By default, we set the "read and check" iteration count to four (4).
