Hi Abhishek,

Some nitpicking below.

You can just state "->write_oob()"

                 ones?

                                      since the user is responsible to
have these bytes cleared to 0xFF.

The end of the sentence is not clear for me. Do you mean that padding
with 0xFF is realized before write?

What about "Pad the data area with OxFF before writing."?

You don't need to move this line here, do you?

Once fixed, you can add my:
