Subject[PATCH v3 0/3] mtd: nand: OMAP: ELM error correction support for BCH ecc
Support to use ELM as BCH 4 & 8 bit error correction module. Also performance
enhancement by adding single shot read_page and write_page functions for the
nand flashes with page size less than 4 KB.

ELM module can be used to correct errors reported by BCH 4, 8 & 16 bit
ECC scheme. For now only 4 & 8 bit support is added.

BCH 4 & 8 bit error detection support is already available in mainline
kernel and works with software error correction.

This series is based on [1] and tested with RFC: OMAP GPMC bindings
patch series

1. linux-next/20121129

Tested on am335x-evm for BCH 4 and 8 bit error correction.

Changes since v1:
- Erased page is identified by checking byte [13/7] in read
ecc. To filter out bit flips in OOB area, check 0 bits in
the byte greater than 4.
- GPMC ecc engine configuration moves to omap2.c NAND driver.

Changes since v2:
- Added runtime detection of elm module, instead of depending
on platform data.
- Added bit flip correction in OOB ecc data if bit flip happen
OOB data.

Philip, Avinash (3):
mtd: nand: omap2: Update nerrors using ecc.strength
mtd: devices: elm: Add support for ELM error correction
mtd: nand: omap2: Support for hardware BCH error correction.
