SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 5/9] mtd: nand: atmel: Report PMECC failures as errors
Hi Romain,

I'm not sure we want to have ECC error messages at this level. ECC
errors are rather unusual but not impossible, and sometimes it's even
not a real error (I'm thinking of bitflips in erased pages for
example, which are not necessarily detected/fixed in hardware).

If we decide to print error messages when unfixable bitflips are
detected, it should be done in the nand-controller driver (somewhere
along those lines [1]).

Regards,

Boris
