In anfc_parse_instructions():

+			nfc_op->data_instr = instr;
+			nfc_op->type = NAND_OP_DATA_IN_INSTR;

This looks pointless.

+			nfc_op->data_instr_idx = op_id;
+			break;
+		case NAND_OP_DATA_OUT_INSTR:
+			nfc_op->data_instr = instr;
+			nfc_op->type = NAND_OP_DATA_IN_INSTR;
+			nfc_op->data_instr_idx = op_id;
+			break;
+		case NAND_OP_WAITRDY_INSTR:
+			nfc_op->rdy_timeout_ms = instr->ctx.waitrdy.timeout_ms;

This one also.

+			nfc_op->rdy_delay_ns = instr->delay_ns;

And this one too.

Once you'll have a per pattern callback, I suppose you won't need it
anymore.

Then something like "strength" or "ecc_strength" would be more
meaningful.
