nand_probe() seems to be a function from the "legacy" NAND driver, which 
should no longer be used. Please take a look how this is done in the "new" 
NAND driver "drivers/nand/*". Examples to look at could be the pdnb3 board or 
the PPChameleonEVB.

Please see above.

Best regards,

PS: Again: Do not use the legacy NAND driver anymore. It's not supported 
anymore and will eventually be deleted by Wolfgang in the future.
