The size of those buffers is likely to be device dependent, so if you
have several NANDs connected to the controller, you'll either have to
have one buffer at the controller level which is max(all-chip-buf-size)
or a buffer per device.

Also, do you really need these buffers? The core already provide some
which are suitable for DMA (chip->oob_poi and chip->data_buf).

Sure.
