Hmmm. I suspect those could be bad blocks, and we're not interpreting
the Bad Block Table correctly. I really do need to spent a little time
on fixing the BBT handling for all the DiskOnChip devices; I want to
make it completely impossible to erase a bad block without hacking the
code to allow it.

Can you take a complete dump of the /dev/mtd0 device with nanddump and
let me have a copy, please?

That's intentional and harmless. It installs the appropriate (doc2000)
driver and exits having done its work -- the docprobe module _really_ is
just for probing.
