The normal behavior - which usually works - has
chip->onfi_timing_mode_default=5 here. So in other words on the first pass
through this loop it is checking mode 5, and setting it as the default.

I am running a test/reboot loop now waiting for failure to see
if it is still using mode 5 in that case.

Greg
