porting marvell-nand driver for u-boot

Hello all!

I've recently run into an issue where I have enabled on-die ECC in Linux which required the block sizing I had been using to change from 2048 to 512. This is now causing UBI to throw the following error:

ubi0 error: ubi_io_read: error -74 (ECC error) while reading 64 bytes from PEB 0:0, read 64 bytes
ubi0 error: validate_ec_hdr: bad VID header offset 512, expected 2048
ubi0 error: validate_ec_hdr: bad EC header

As far as I can tell, the 2048 value is hard-coded in the current pxa nand driver I had been using in u-boot. It seems like the preferred path to proceed would be to port the current marvell-nand driver from Linux into u-boot but that seems a little more involved as it will require changes to the core nand driver as well. Are there any current plans to adapt these changes from v4.16+ of Linux? If so, is there a patch set somewhere that I could pull in to start testing?
