Thanks, that fixed it.

I have tried this under 2.6.33 on a custom SAM9G45 based board with a
512MiB NAND part, with 2kB pages and 128kB blocks using both raw MTD
access and the YAFFS2 filesystem and it appears to work correctly.

Tested-by: Ryan Mallon <ryan@bluewatersys.com>

Can you please update for the changes I suggested.

Thanks,
~Ryan
