Well this looks like an especially clever register map and a specific choice
of bit 31 in the fist register to activate FMC2. Registers 0x04 thru
0x7c are completely unused save for one bit.

It's almost like this is the good old FSMC integrated in parallel with FMC2,
so that if you don't set bit 31, this becomes something that can be used
with drivers/mtd/nand/raw/fsmc_nand.c, and FMC2 mode is activated
by setting this bit, activating all the new registers.

It wouldn't surprise me given how HW designers like to work.

Is this the case?

If that is the case I think it should at least be mentioned in commit
logs and DT bindings and possibly in a comment on the driver
itself.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
