Subject[PATCH 3/3] mtd: rawnand: vf610_nfc: handle only idle interrupts
There are two similar sounding interrupts: IDLE and DONE. The DONE
interrupt only reflects the NAND command state, but not DMA or HW
ECC correction. The IDLE interrupt reflects that all components are
idle. The driver can assume that the NAND command finished and that
data have been transferred and corrected.

This driver makes use of the IDLE interrupt only. But before this
patch the driver still handled all interrupts and cleared the DONE
interrupt although not used. This works just fine in practice, but
is not the way it should be done.

This patch makes sure that only the IDLE interrupt is handled and
cleared. To do so we have to clear the status bit in the interrupt
routine. With that it is also save to keep the interrupt always
enabled and just clear the IRQ in the interrupt handler.

This new interrupt handling has been tested for several thousand
boots and did not show any adverse effects.
