After all the changes we discussed in [1] I was able to test nand/next-with-gpmc-rework
and it worked fine.

[1] - http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.hardware.netbook.arm.sunxi/22596/focus=22936

I'd be happy to test the branch again after you've incorporated all changes.

Since you are gong to do a push -f anyways, I was wondering if you want to pull in my
gpmc branch first to avoid the merge conflict. But it is totally up to you.
