This is only an API consolidation and should make things more readable
it replaces var * HZ / 1000 by msecs_to_jiffies(var) which helps readability
and also handles all corner-cases properly.

Patch was compile tested with corenet64_smp_defconfig 
(implies CONFIG_MTD_NAND_FSL_IFC=y)

Patch is against 4.0-rc3 (localversion-next is -next-20150313

Nicholas,
Your patch makes me think that this timeout value should be calculated
once during initialization and stored in a new member of
struct fsl_ifc_mtd. That would improve readability AND have some
positive impact on performance.

is it not a bit wasteful to put it into struct fsl_ifc_mtd
which is used quite often in here ?

#define IFC_TIMEOUT msecs_to_jiffies(500)

sould do - its only referenced twice and would achieve what you
suggested - initializing it in one location and improved readability

	wait_event_timeout(ctrl->nand_wait, ctrl->nand_stat, IFC_TIMEOUT);

would there be any disadvantage of this solution?

thx!

Storing the timeout in the private structure would use 4 or 8 bytes,
but the structure is passed around as pointer reference, so there is
no added overhead there.

I don't have an issue with the compactness of your code. The issue
to me is that msecs_to_jiffies() is a real function call, not a macro.
That means that there would be a branch to that function followed by a
non-trivial calculation *every* time fsl_ifc_run_command() is called.

If the timeout value were calculated during init, then the cost of
accessing it would simply a pointer dereference.

Pushed to l2-mtd.git.

I'm not sure the objections about an extra function call are important
right now; if they are, then it shouldn't be too hard to patch in a
__builtin_constant_p() variant of msecs_to_jiffies(), as Joe suggested.
