The driver look's good to me. However, Boris contributed new
cleanups that I would like you to take into account before doing
another 'deep' review. Please rebase on top of nand/next and have
a look at the followingcommits. For the ->select_chip() hook, it
should not be exposed anymore and switches should be handled
locally by the driver (you have examples).

While at it, could you also address Linus W. comments.
