NAME

nand_read_page_hwecc_oob_first - [REPLACEABLE] hw ecc, read oob first

SYNOPSIS

int nand_read_page_hwecc_oob_first(struct mtd_info mtd, struct nand_chip chip, uint8_t buf, int oob_required, int page);

ARGUMENTS

mtd

mtd info structure

chip

nand chip info structure

buf

buffer to store read data

oob_required

caller requires OOB data read to chip->oob_poi

page

page number to read

DESCRIPTION

Hardware ECC for large page chips, require OOB to be read first. For this ECC mode, the write_page method is re-used from ECC_HW. These methods read/write ECC from the OOB area, unlike the ECC_HW_SYNDROME support with multiple ECC steps, follows the "infix ECC" scheme and reads/writes ECC from the data area, by overwriting the NAND manufacturer bad block markings.
