now, when driver is no longer Amstrad Delta specific, why would you want
to have ams-delta-nand hardcoded on kernel cmdline? I'm assuming at some
point this driver will become gpio-nand [*] or something like that and
asking users to change their kernel cmdline twice is just unwise :)

[*] btw, it is really shame gpio-nand name is already taken by driver
living in drivers/mtd/nand/raw/gpio.c which is more likely gpio-mem-nand
used by at least CompuLab CM-X255 and Picochip picoXcell.

Otherwise your work on this driver is so amazing that I just spent
couple of hours finding that phone and compiling some decent userspace
for it :) Thank you!
