Thats the point.
Userspace doesn't/can't use that mode.
It is not exposed through mtdchar.
Userspace reads the page, and then reads the oob.

It does use MTD_OOB_RAW, but without data buffer, and this path I don't

The only user of this, is the nand itself, when it reads bad block

I confess that I didn't run test that I ported this code correctly.
But I did logically verified many times that the new code works just
like old one.

Best regards,
Maxim Levitsky
