[PATCH] colibri-imx6ull: fix setup of nand gpmi clock

NXP used to setup the gpmi clock root from gpmi_clk in early versions
in their downstream BSP. [1]
However on mainline the gpmi clock root was always setup from enfc
since the beginning of the i.MX 6 series SoCs, which is still the same
today. [2]

NXP followed the mainline approach at some point and changed
setup_gpmi_io_clk to setup gpmi clock root from enfc which left faulty
code behind in our board file. [3]

This commit follows the change of NXP as it improves the performance of
the NAND from ~1.2 MiB/s to ~12 MiB/s. [3]

This change was verified to work in recovery-mode and u-boot loaded
from NAND on all four Colibri iMX6ULL SKUs from Toradex.

The frequency used to read the NAND, measured on RE# (Read Enable):
before this patch: 1.4 MHz
after this patch:   22 MHz
in Linux Kernel:    50 MHz
