IIUC you trigger the action as soon as you have a bitflip error, is this

Isn't this too much conservative? You usually have a RBER on MLC devices
that's between 1E-7 (for brand new devices) and 1E-4 (for devices with
1k-2k P/E cycle after 100k-300k read-without-P/E)

Having a few bitflips on a block read is more that usual and current ECC
can correct more that 16 bit error over 512/1KiB.
