NAND ECC on a per-partition basis

I'm working with a Micron POP part for an omap3530, and I need to write
pages in the boot block using the builtin Hamming ECC(as the bootrom
expects it), but the rest of the blocks I want to use the NAND's builtin
4-bit ECC engine.

Is there any way to specify the ECC method on a per-partition basis?

If not, what would be the best way to go about modifying the MTD code to
allow such?
