It sure looks like it can be in nand_exit_status_op()...

I don't think we should make the code more complicated than necessary
just to make static checkers happy. When you say "this driver", you
mean the staging driver? In that case, there is no need to revert
commit 6efb21d6d0e7 ("staging:mt29f_spinand: MT29F2G failing as only 16
bits used for addressing.").
