I know this.
This is a problem for denali because
I have not decoupled chip/controller yet.


Maybe, is the following better?


------------------>8-----------------------
nand_scan_ident() iterates over maxchips to find as many homogeneous
chips as possible.

Since commit 2d472aba15ff ("mtd: nand: document the NAND controller/NAND
chip DT representation"), new drivers should pass in the exact number of
CS lines instead of possible max, but old platforms may still rely on
nand_scan_ident() to detect the actual number of connected CS lines.

In that case, this loop bails out when manufacturer or device ID
unmatches. The reason of unmatch is most likely no chip is connected
to that CS line. If so, nand_reset() should already have failed,
and the following nand_readid_op() is pointless.

Before ->exec_op hook was introduced, drivers had no way to tell
the failure of NAND_CMD_RESET to the framework because the legacy
->cmdfunc() has void return type. Now drivers implementing ->exec_op
hook can return the error code. You can save nand_readid_op() by
checking the return value of nand_reset(). The return value of
nand_readid_op() should be checked as well. If it fails, probably
id[0] and id[1] are undefined values.

Just for consistency, it should be sensible to check the return
code in nand_do_write_oob() as well.
