Hi Boris and Miquel,

gpmi-nand.c sets NAND_SKIP_BBTSCAN so we won't get there and populate
suspend resume hooks :(
Guess there is other drivers that does the same thing...

I have looked in the history and tried to blame gpmi-nand.c, but I can't
see the reason to why NAND_SKIP_BBTSCAN is set.

I have tested Boris' hack with this diff (and it seems to work):

diff --git a/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/gpmi-nand/gpmi-nand.c b/drivers/mtd/nand/raw/gpmi-nand/gpmi-nand.c
index 4d08e4ab5c1b..ec7f44d630b6 100644

Do I miss something?
