Well, I don't think it's actually as dire as you say. The erased-page
bitflips won't be flagged as -EUCLEAN, but they will be "corrected." I
expect that this should be fine mostly.

But anyway, tagged for -stable and re-queued to l2-mtd.git.

In the future, I may be less likely to do this kind of rebasing. Note
that there is still a procedure for getting fixes to -stable after their

 - Send the patch, after verifying that it follows the above rules, to
   stable at vger.kernel.org.  You must note the upstream commit ID in the
   changelog of your submission, as well as the kernel version you wish
   it to be applied to.
