This line induces the following failure when everything is built as a
module:

  drivers/mtd/nand/stm_nand_bbt.c:579:6: error: redefinition of 'nandi_dump_bad_blocks'
  include/linux/mtd/stm_nand_bbt.h:16:84: note: previous definition of 'nandi_dump_bad_blocks' was here

This highlights the fact that:
(1) This should be 'static inline', not just 'inline'
(2) Your code is not modularized properly. You can't build
    stm_nand_bbt.o and stm_nand_bch.o as kernel modules properly, since
    #if defined() isn't true when CONFIG_MTD_NAND_STM_BCH_BBT=m
(3) You're building 3 separate modules for your STM NAND code, where 2
    might suffice (one for NAND support and one for BBT).

Ezequiel has been running through some of the same build problems with
the OMAP NAND + ELM (ECC) driver recently. You might check the recent
MTD archives for this. Or you might just restrict your driver to being
built-in (non-module) if you can't fix this for now.
