So the ECC engine is broken by design.

I think you should determine a number of bitflips (16 looks nice to me)
over which you declare the page bad anyway.

Now, this is generic logic: anytime a page is declared bad, you should
re-read the page in raw mode and check for the number of bitflips
manually (thanks to the helpers in the core). Again, if the number of BF
is above 16, we can assume the page is bad and increment ->ecc.failed
