Subject[PATCH 4.17 099/220] mtd: rawnand: Do not check FAIL bit when executing a SET_FEATURES op
Date
4.17-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Boris Brezillon <boris.brezillon@bootlin.com>

commit 782d1967d0479ffd59412b2f3179c8bb35f50ff6 upstream.

The ONFI spec clearly says that FAIL bit is only valid for PROGRAM,
ERASE and READ-with-on-die-ECC operations, and should be ignored
otherwise.

It seems that checking it after sending a SET_FEATURES is a bad idea
because a previous READ, PROGRAM or ERASE op may have failed, and
depending on the implementation, the FAIL bit is not cleared until a
new READ, PROGRAM or ERASE is started.

This leads to ->set_features() returning -EIO while it actually worked,
which can sometimes stop a batch of READ/PROGRAM ops.

Note that we only fix the ->exec_op() path here, because some drivers
are abusing the NAND_STATUS_FAIL flag in their ->waitfunc()
implementation to propagate other kind of errors, like
wait-ready-timeout or controller-related errors. Let's not try to fix
those drivers since they worked fine so far.
