SPI NAND flash driver for i.MX6

Hi All,


 We are planning to use Micron's SPI NAND chip(MT29F4G01) in i.mx6q SOC based custom hardware. We have got spi nand driver from microns, Let me know how to integrate these driver in i.mx6 linux 4.1.15 BSP. In the Linux BSP we have seen only i.mx6 SPI nor controller driver. Will it work for a SPI NAND flash driver? or how do we port the driver in 4.1.5 to make it detect.

Thanks in Advance,
Shabeer
