I tried updating the driver as per your comments.
But I am facing an issue here.
The part I am using is http://www.cypress.com/file/207521/download.
This part doesn't support get/set features. But the controller supports it.
In this case, the frame work is doing like this
If chip supports set_features, then it issues the ONFI_FEATURE_ADDR_TIMING_MODE other wise not.
In our case it won't and then next it simply changes the controller mode. Hence both are in different timing mode and not
Able to communicate with the nand flash device.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/v4.18-rc3/source/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/nand_base.c#L1285
Am I missing something?
Could you please help on this.

The code snippet is like this
tatic int pl353_setup_data_interface(struct mtd_info *mtd, int csline,
const struct nand_data_interface *conf)
{
sdr = nand_get_sdr_timings(conf);
if (IS_ERR(sdr)) {

return PTR_ERR(sdr);
}
if (csline == NAND_DATA_IFACE_CHECK_ONLY) {
return 0;
}
}

Thanks,
Naga Sureshkumar Relli.
