Actually I did it on purpose, because nothing prevents anyone from
connecting its NAND chip on a different CS and connect something else
on CS3, hence this NAND node should not be defined at SoC level but in
upper layers.
I know this is currently hardcoded in the NAND driver, but I'd really
like to have the DT part corrected, and defining the NAND node in the
proper dts(i) file is part of the correction.

If you really want to make this node common to all atmel boards
embedding a sama5d3 SoC, then we could create another dtsi (but I
remember that Nicolas was trying to limit the number of dtsi files).

The same goes for the other parts you pointed out.

Best Regards,

Boris
