From: David Brownell <dbrownell@users.sourceforge.net>

The syndrome based page read/write routines store ECC, and possibly
other "OOB" data, right after each chunk of ECC'd data.  With ECC
chunk size of 512 bytes and a large page (2KB) NAND, the layout is:

  data-0 OOB-0 data-1 OOB-1 data-2 OOB-2 data-3 OOB-3 OOB-leftover

Where OOBx is (prepad, ECC, postpad).  However, the current "raw"
routines use a traditional layout -- data OOB, disregarding the
prepad and postpad values -- so when they're used with that type of
ECC hardware, those calls mix up the data and OOB.  Which means,
in particular, that bad block tables won't be found on startup,
with data corruption and related chaos ensuing.

The current syndrome-based drivers in mainline all seem to use one
chunk per page; presumably they haven't noticed such bugs.

Fix this, by adding read/write page_raw_syndrome() routines as
siblings of the existing non-raw routines; "raw" just means to
bypass the ECC computations, not change data and OOB layout.

Observed when trying to get this working with the DaVinci NAND
driver in 4-bit ECC mode with a large page chip.

Please don't create variables called "temp" or "tmp".

It would be clearer to code this as a plain old up-counting for loop.

Here the same woefully-named variable appears to be reemployed for some
semantically quite different purpose.
