Kumar, I wasn't wrong entirely I just missed one detail. U-Boot
provides two different configs, not just one define like its for

- include/configs/P1_P2_RDB.h

  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE            0xffa00000
  #ifdef CONFIG_PHYS_64BIT
  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE_PHYS       0xfffa00000ull
  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE            0xfff00000
  #ifdef CONFIG_PHYS_64BIT
  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE_PHYS       0xffff00000ull

- include/configs/p1_p2_rdb_pc.h

  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE            0xff800000
  #ifdef CONFIG_PHYS_64BIT
  #define CONFIG_SYS_NAND_BASE_PHYS       0xfff800000ull

and for kernel they use both the same device tree. So with the change,
the _pc variant finds its flash. Before that it worked for the non-pc
variant only if NAND_SPL wasn't used.
Any suggestion on fixing that? Providing a new dt for _pc would "fix"
it but the non pc variant won't find it in the case of NAND_SPL.

Since both system have the same SoC and the NAND_SPL is always linked
against 0xfff00000 I don't see anything wrong to relocate the NAND CS
later to 0xff800000 (or to 0xffa00000) and having it consistent among
both configs.
