SubjectRe: [PATCH] mtd: nand: Add support for reading ooblayout from device tree
Hi Paul,

Why would we want to do that? I mean, ECC/free regions are ECC
controller dependent (and NAND chip dependent for the OOB size part),
so there's no reason to describe it in the DT. And more importantly,
people are likely to get it wrong.

I'm curious, why do you need that?

Regards,

Boris
