Subject[PATCH 4.4 21/27] mtd: nand: Fix writing mtdoops to nand flash.
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Brent Taylor <motobud@gmail.com>

commit 30863e38ebeb500a31cecee8096fb5002677dd9b upstream.

When mtdoops calls mtd_panic_write(), it eventually calls
panic_nand_write() in nand_base.c. In order to properly wait for the
nand chip to be ready in panic_nand_wait(), the chip must first be
selected.

When using the atmel nand flash controller, a panic would occur due to
a NULL pointer exception.

Fixes: 2af7c6539931 ("mtd: Add panic_write for NAND flashes")
