I would prefer if people like Ivan could take a look at this first.

Also, I am not sure this is a good idea. Or at least we should agree on
some common strategy for bit-flips in the erased areas:

"+ * 1. If page is erased, check with standard ecc vector (ecc vector
+ * for erased page to find any bit flip). If check fails, bit flip
+ * is present in erased page. Count the bit flips in erased page and
+ * if it falls under correctable level, report page with 0xFF and
+ * update the correctable bit information."

Basically, you are working-around JFFS2 limitations.

Do you suggest we do this in all the drivers?

If we want to do this, may be we better do this in higher level, common
to all drivers?

Best Regards,
Artem Bityutskiy
