[PATCH][4.14] mtd: rawnand: gpmi: fix MX28 bus master lockup problem




Disable BCH soft reset according to MX23 erratum #2847 ("BCH soft
reset may cause bus master lock up") for MX28 too. It has the same
problem.

Observed problem: once per 100,000+ MX28 reboots NAND read failed on
DMA timeout errors:
[    1.770823] UBI: attaching mtd3 to ubi0
[    2.768088] gpmi_nand: DMA timeout, last DMA :1
[    3.958087] gpmi_nand: BCH timeout, last DMA :1
[    4.156033] gpmi_nand: Error in ECC-based read: -110
[    4.161136] UBI warning: ubi_io_read: error -110 while reading 64
bytes from PEB 0:0, read only 0 bytes, retry
[    4.171283] step 1 error
[    4.173846] gpmi_nand: Chip: 0, Error -1

Without BCH soft reset we successfully executed 1,000,000 MX28 reboots.

I have a quote from NXP regarding this problem, from July 18th 2016:

"As the i.MX23 and i.MX28 are of the same generation, they share many
characteristics. Unfortunately, also the erratas may be shared.
In case of the documented erratas and the workarounds, you can also
apply the workaround solution of one device on the other one. This have
been reported, but I’m afraid that there are not an estimated date for
updating the Errata documents.
Please accept our apologies for any inconveniences this may cause."

I'm actually not sure about the correct form. This is in reply to Sasha's
autmated email with failed builds for old kernels. This should apply to
 4.14 and older stable trees.

I'll point to this over there and please say so in case you need Tags
or something else.

thanks
