It seems to me that your code won't work if mtd->erasesize <
OOPS_PAGE_SIZE anyway, so this check should not be here I guess.

mtd->read() returns -EUCLEAN in case of a correctable bit-flip, ignore
this error code here and elsewhere as well please.

Well, mtd->block_isbad() may return error, unlikely, bu still. You also
ignore the error at other places.

Ugh, why do you make it this difficult way instead of

for (all EBs) {
ret = erase()
if (ret == -EIO) {
markbad();
} else
return err;
}

Please, mark EB as bad only in case of -EIO. Also, do not ignore error
code of mtd->block_markbad()


Is it possible to re-structure the code and erase/check if EB is bad in
_one_ cycle (thus avoiding this goto which is difficult to understand)?

Surely all you want is to format the partition. So make a loop, skip bad
EBs and erase good ones. In case of erase failure (-EIO) mark the EB as
bad.

Please, check return code here.
