Subject: [PATCH v13 07/20] dt-bindings: mtd: Document boolean NAND ECC properties
Date: Thu, 27 Aug 2020 10:51:55 +0200
Message-ID: <20200827085208.16276-8-miquel.raynal@bootlin.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200827085208.16276-1-miquel.raynal@bootlin.com>

Document nand-use-soft-ecc-engine and nand-no-ecc-engine properties.
The former is here to force software correction, the latter prevents
any correction to happen.

These properties (along with nand-ecc-engine) are supposed to be more
accurate than the current nand-ecc-modes wich is very misleading and
very often people think it is mandatory while the core should be
relied upon to decide which correction to handle.

nand-ecc-mode was already inacurate, but it becomes totally
problematic with setups where there are several hardware engines.
