Thank you Scott and Fabio,

You help is much appreciated.

I will try to add the nand support for mx53 mainline.

However, what I am trying to do is to build a u-boot that supports NAND
and have YAFFS2 as well and at moment I use the mx53_ard board since
this is very close to what my custom board will be.  I was able to build
such a version, using Freescale u-boot sources, which included nand
subsystem, and yaffs commands.  Then I needed to create partitions in
the nand and this is where i "discovered" I needed the support of
mtdparts command.

So I, guess, I need to configure the u-boot for mtdparts support.  This
is where I am at.
