When used with pl353_nand.c, this change prioritizes the
pl353_nand_read_page_raw/pl353_nand_write_page_raw implementations over
micron_nand_read_page_on_die_ecc/micron_nand_write_page_on_die_ecc. The
pl353 implementations don't check the status register of the flash for
NAND_ECC_STATUS_WRITE_RECOMMENDED nor do they update ecc_stats.failed in
any way. Unless I am mistaken, this implies that bitflips cannot be
detected at all anymore.

However, this is the change that makes a MT29F2G08ABAEAWP practically
work with jffs2 on the Zynq platform.

In this context, I countered a document from Micron[1] indicating that
their on-die chips are incompatible with jffs2 as is, because the on-die
oob layout is incompatible with jffs2. I suppose that using the raw
variants puts jffs2 in full control of the oob area, but is this really
the correct solution?
