Perhaps, Marc Gonzalez is the person.

tango_nand.c is the only driver that sets NAND_WAIT_TCCS.

Now, there is completely no delay when reading out the ID.

One safe change might be apply this patch,
then set NAND_WAIT_TWHR to tango_nand.c

I am guessing NAND_WAIT_TCCS was added for it.
Theoretically, I do not see logical difference between tCCS and tWHR.

I am CCing Marc Gonzalez, the author of tango_nand.c

    mtd: nand: Wait tCCS after a column change

    Drivers implementing ->cmd_ctrl() and relying on the default ->cmdfunc()
    implementation usually don't wait tCCS when a column change (RNDIN or
    RNDOUT) is requested.
    Add an option flag to ask the core to do so (note that we keep this as
    an opt-in to avoid breaking existing implementations), and make use of
    the ->data_interface information is available (otherwise, wait 500ns).
