Hm, this sounds a bit fragile: if we ever fix the Macronix driver
(which should be done BTW) to set the appropriate ECC requirements, it
will break all platforms that were relying on this 'fall back to legacy
logic'.
So, if what you really want is legacy_set_geometry(), don't specify
"fsl,use-minimum-ecc" in your DT and you should be good. Otherwise, fix
the Macronix driver to initialize ->ecc_{strength,step_size}_ds
appropriately.

Regards,

Boris
