This patch adds the new mode NAND_ECC_HW_OOB_FIRST in the nand code to
support 4-bit ECC on TI DaVinci devices with large page (up to 2K) NAND
chips. This ECC mode is similar to NAND_ECC_HW, with the exception of
read_page API that first reads the OOB area, reads the data in chunks, feeds
the ECC from OOB area to the ECC hw engine and perform any correction on the
data as per the ECC status reported by the engine.

"ECC_HW_OOB_FIRST" name suggested by Thomas Gleixner

This patch series applies to linux-mtd next (mmotm) GIT tree.
This patch is the same as v2 version of this patch.
