When errors are detected in a subpage, we correct them. If the error count is
less than or equal to a threshold (in our case 2), we clear it (i.e. we forget
how many errors we just corrected). We accumulate those error counts into the
global page error count which we return (from function nand.ecc.correct()).
It's just a hack, waiting for a better solution.
