Unfortunately, that's not going to work in the long term. You're
basically hacking the raw NAND framework to make SPI NANDs fit. I do
understand the rationale behind this decision (re-using the code for
ECC and probably other things), but that's not going to work. So I'd
recommend doing the following instead:

1/ implement a SPI-mem controller driver
2/ implement an ECC engine driver so the ECC logic can be shared
   between the SPI controller and raw NAND controller drivers
3/ convert the raw NAND driver to the exec_op() interface (none of
   this hack would have been possible if the driver was using the new
   API)

Regards,

Boris
