Well I'm thinking that you just basically need something like this in
gpmc.c:

int gpmc_prefetch_request(int cs);
int gpmc_prefetch_enable(int cs);
int gpmc_prefetch_reset(int cs);
...

And gpmc_prefetch_request would then return an error if already taken.
No need then to tinker with the GPMC prefetch registers in the NAND
driver.

I guess I'm talking in generic terms. What's under drivers/* should in the long
run be device independent code, and the platform specific code should be under
arch/arm/*omap*.
