OK so I tried and never faced any error. Thus I also attempted to mark
a bad block in u-boot, it appeared in the bad blocks table, then I had
to scrub the whole table to get rid of it. Each time when I booted I
saw the message "Scanning device for bad blocks" but no error ever
happened. So I hope it's OK.

Please find a summary of my tests below.

OK
