Subject: [PATCH v2] mtd: nand: Add help text for i.MX NAND controllers
Date: Thu, 27 May 2021 01:37:41 -0700
Message-ID: <20210527083741.789109-1-tpiepho@gmail.com> (raw)

There are two different NAND drivers, used for different chips in the
i.MX range.  It's quite confusing as to which to use.  Add some help
text to clarify.

Changes from V1:
  Add GPMI and NFC names, fix typos.
