Subject: [PATCH v2 09/14] mtd: rawnand: qcom: modify write_oob to remove read codeword part
Date: Thu,  3 May 2018 17:50:36 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1525350041-22995-10-git-send-email-absahu@codeaurora.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1525350041-22995-1-git-send-email-absahu@codeaurora.org>

QCOM NAND layout protect available OOB data bytes with ECC also so
when ecc->write_oob (qcom_nandc_write_oob) is being called then it
can't update just OOB bytes. Currently, it first reads the last
codeword which includes old OOB bytes. Then it updates the old OOB
bytes with new one and then again writes the codeword back.
The reading codeword is unnecessary since all the other bytes
should be 0xff only.

This patch removes the read part and updates the oob bytes with
all other data bytes as 0xff.
