Question on 'doc_read_ecc'...

If I am understanding things correctly, in 'doc_read_ecc' we
prevent the caller from reading across a 512 byte boundary and
that they cannot read more than 512 bytes at a time. Is this
correct for DoC2xxx devices and should it be the case for NAND
devices as well? I believe that for NAND devices it makes sense
since VFS and filesystems on average assume a 512 byte sector
size. Just looking for agreement on my thought process.
