Rajashekhara, Sudhakar - Dec. 10, 2009, 9:36 a.m.
On TI's DA830/OMAP-L137, DA850/OMAP-L138 and DM365, after
setting the 4BITECC_ADD_CALC_START bit in the NAND Flash
control register to 1 and before waiting for the NAND Flash
status register to be equal to 1, 2 or 3, we have to wait
till the ECC HW goes to correction state. Without this wait,
ECC correction calculations will not be proper.

This has been tested on DA830/OMAP-L137, DA850/OMAP-L138,
DM355 and DM365 EVMs.

 From the previous version, timeout has been added to come out
 of the infinite loop.
