Sadly the cache is in writeback mode.

Is my understanding correct that the cache itself is fine?  It is just the
inability to clear the needs_check flag that is preventing me from using the
device?  Or did I miss to run some checks that could reveal a problem / did I
misinterpret the output of cache_check on lv_cache?
