Noisily disable the legacy NAND subsystem.

Legacy NAND is marked for feature removal after April 2009 (i.e. this
upcoming release).  There are still several boards that reference it
(though many do so only for disk-on-chip support which has been silently
disabled for a while now).  These boards will now fail to build
with #error, though the code is still there if the user removes #error.

The plan is to remove the code outright in the next release, along with
any board code that refers to it (such as board/esd/common/auto_update.c).

Also, remove the legacy NAND API description from README.nand.

#define NAND_WAIT_READY(nand)
Wait until the NAND flash is ready. Typically this would be a

it is ready.
#define WRITE_NAND_COMMAND(d, adr)
Write the command byte `d' to the flash at `adr' with the
CLE (command latch enable) line true. If your board uses writes to
different addresses to control CLE and ALE, you can modify `adr'
to be the appropriate address here. If your board uses I/O registers
to control them, it is probably better to let NAND_CTL_SETCLE()
and company do it.
#define WRITE_NAND_ADDRESS(d, adr)
Write the address byte `d' to the flash at `adr' with the
ALE (address latch enable) line true. If your board uses writes to

NOTE:
=====
We now use a complete rewrite of the NAND code based on what is in
2.6.12 Linux kernel.
The old NAND handling code has been re-factored and is now confined
to only board-specific files and - unfortunately - to the DoC code
(see below). A new configuration variable has been introduced:
CONFIG_NAND_LEGACY, which has to be defined in the board config file if
that board uses legacy code.
The necessary changes have been made to all affected boards, and no
build breakage has been introduced, except for NETTA and NETTA_ISDN
targets from MAKEALL. This is due to the fact that these two boards
use JFFS, which has been adopted to use the new NAND, and at the same
time use NAND in legacy mode. The breakage will disappear when the
board-specific code is changed to the new NAND.
The current NAND implementation is based on what is in recent
Linux kernels. The old legacy implementation has been disabled,
and will be removed soon.
As mentioned above, the legacy code is still used by the DoC subsystem.
The consequence of this is that the legacy NAND can't be removed from
the tree until the DoC is ported to use the new NAND support (or boards
with DoC will break).
If you have board code which used CONFIG_NAND_LEGACY, you'll need
to convert to the current NAND interface for it to continue to work.
The Disk On Chip driver is currently broken and has been for some time.
There is a driver in drivers/mtd/nand, taken from Linux, that works with
the current NAND system but has not yet been adapted to the u-boot
environment.
