NAND: Add nand read.raw and write.raw commands

These commands should work around various "hardware" ECC and BCH methods.

nand read.raw addr ofs|partition
Read page from `ofs' in NAND flash to `addr'. This reads the raw page,
so ECC is avoided and the OOB area is read as well.
nand write.raw addr ofs|partition
Write page from `addr' to `ofs' in NAND flash. This writes the raw page,
so ECC is avoided and the OOB area is written as well, making the whole
page written as-is.
