pekon gupta - July 17, 2013, 7:52 p.m.
With increase in NAND flash densities occurence of bit-flips has increased.
Thus stronger ECC schemes are required for detecting and correcting multiple
simultaneous bit-flips in same NAND page. But stronger ECC schemes have large
ECC syndrome which require more space in OOB/Spare.
This patch add support for BCH16_ECC:
(a) BCH16_ECC can correct 16 bit-flips per 512Bytes of data.
(b) BCH16_ECC generates 26-bytes of ECC syndrome / 512B.

Due to (b) this scheme can only be used with NAND devices which have enough
OOB to satisfy following equation:
OOBsize per page >= 26 * (page-size / 512)
