I tired but performance was not acceptable.

I see your point but please understand, what I'm trying to do here is not to
develop a shiny general purpose fully GPIO based NAND driver, I'm trying to
resolve issues with NAND driver for Amstrad Delta I like to play with, without
loosing much performance.

I'm going to reconsider all possible options, not only doing data I/O over
GPIO inside the driver, to have the task completed. Once done, I can get
back to the GPIO based code I developed so far and create a new generic driver
as my free time permits, or anyone can do that if needed, the code is open
source after all.
