update the ecc step size when we have already get the right value.

Why do you need a special case here for gpmi-nand? GPMI should be
initializing nand_ecc_ctrl.size (this->ecc.size) to something meaningful
instead of directly setting to 1. Then nand_base will take care of
setting mtd.ecc_step.

Along the same line, you shouldn't need to directly override
mtd.ecc_strength here; you should be setting this->ecc.strength
appropriately.

I see several instances here where gpmi-nand is hacking around
nand_base, rather than using its intended infrastructure.

The right way seems to be to avoid nand_scan() directly but instead to
use nand_scan_ident() and nand_scan_tail() separately (that's what
they're exported for) so that you can initialize any geometry-related
options before nand_scan_tail() does the last steps.

In the end, you shouldn't be needing to override this->scan_bbt at all,
since you really intend to use the default implementation; you just are
doing this to hack around your issues. In fact, I think every use of
nand_default_bbt() outside of nand_base is a design mistake.

Correction: should be this->nand.ecc.size

Correction: should be this->nand.ecc.strength. And another correction:
you are already setting this field, but you are doing it in the wrong
place.

Sorry for the above mistakes, but the argument still holds. In fact,
it's somewhat stronger, because gpmi-nand has to assign the same
information to two different (redundant) fields
(this->nand.ecc.strength and this->mtd.ecc_strength) because it is not
using the proper layering here.

i agree with you.
I will create a v3 version tomorrow when i back to office.

thanks for the review.
