Subject: [PATCH] mtd: fsmc_nand: fix handling of wait_for_completion_timeout result

wait_for_completion_timeout does not return negative values so
"result" handling here should be simplified to cover the actually
possible cases only.

patch was only compile tested for nhk8815_defconfig

patch is against linux-next 3.19.0-rc1 -next-20141226
