I also prefer nvidia,tegra20-nand-controller.

People get confused about what this node represents when you just have
"nvidia,tegra20-nand", and then you start seeing NAND related props or
partition nodes being defined under the NAND controller node.
I really prefer to have the "-controller" prefix here to avoid such
confusions.
