I am sorry I don't understand very well what is the purpose of this
patch, could you please explain it again?

Do you mean that you want to avoid having rising ECC errors when you
read erased pages?

And later you have another "if (buffer & BS_UNCORRECTABLE_BIT)" which
is then redundant, unless that is not what you actually want to do?

Maybe you can add comments before the if ()/ else if () to explain in
which case you enter each branch.

In you are propagating an error related to the controller, this is
fine, but I think you just want to raise the fact that a NAND
uncorrectable error occurred, in this case you should just increment
mtd->ecc_stats.failed and return 0 (returning max_bitflips here would be
fine too has it would be 0 too).
