Yes, -1 means "don't issue the row/page address cycles", though I
don't think page can be -1 for NAND_CMD_READ{1,0} commands.

Anyway, if you want this patch merged to fix a static checker warning,
I'm fine with that. In any case, I still plan to send a patch removing
this driver for v4.20, so, anyone using this driver should start
testing the new SPI NAND driver (drivers/mtd/nand/spi) and tweak/fix
the new implementation if needed.
