This adds support for Freescale NAND flash controller (NFC) found on
various devices such as Vybrid (VF610), MPC5125, MCF54418 (ColdFire)
and Kinetis K70.

The patchset is based on the patchset by Bill Pringlemeir, see:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel/295419

A variant of this driver is in upstream U-Boot now. During this
process, various points have been discussed and changed. Those
changes are also incorporated in this patchset, including the
change to the name "vf610_nfc" (discussion in first patchset).

MTD tests worked, except mtd_nandecctest.ko: The test stopped
already after changing the first bit. I guess this is due to not
properly working raw page read/write implementation. However,
implementing those functions is not feasible since ECC is always
done on-the-fly.

Performance keypoints (slightly less for page write/reads):
[ 1782.284398] mtd_speedtest: testing eraseblock write speed
[ 1963.472907] mtd_speedtest: eraseblock write speed is 2877 KiB/s
[ 1963.478913] mtd_speedtest: testing eraseblock read speed
[ 2004.906267] mtd_speedtest: eraseblock read speed is 12586 KiB/s

The driver has only been tested on Freescale Vybrid. Tests on other
platforms welcome, especially on big endian architectures...

Changes since v1:
- Nest nfc_config struct within the main nfc struct
- Use assigned clock binding to specify NFC clock
- Rebased ontop of MSCM IR patchset (driver parts have been merged)
- Split out arch Kconfig in a seperate config
- Fix module license
- Updated MAINTAINERS

Changes since RFC (Bill Pringlemeir):
- Renamed driver from fsl_nfc to vf610_nfc
- Use readl/writel for all register in accessor functions
- Optimized field accessor functions
- Implemented PM (suspend/resume) functions
- Implemented basic support for ECC strength/ECC step size from dt
- Improved performance of count_written_bits by using hweight32
- Support ECC with 60-bytes to correct up to 32 bit errors
- Changed to in-band BBT (NAND_BBT_NO_OOB) which also allows ECC modes
  which uses up to 60 bytes on 64 byte OOB
- Removed custom (downstream) BBT pattern since BBT table won't be
  compatible anyway (due to the change above)
