As long as the code does the same thing, I don't care that much.

and I don't see how your code is simpler. Mainly a matter of taste
AFAICS.

I agree on the false-positive warning though, this should be avoided.

Well, if you have a chip that requires ECC but exposes 0bits/0bytes
then this should be fixed. 0,0 should only be valid when the chip does
not require ECC at all (so, only really old chips). For all other chips,
including non-ONFI ones, we should have a valid value here.

True. So, I agree that the pr_warn() is unneeded, but I still think we
should fix all cases where ECC reqs are missing, so if you have such a
setup, please add some code to nand_<vendor>.c to initialize
->ecc_xxx_ds properly.

Thanks,
