At least the TRM says "The EMIFA supports 4-bit ECC on 8-bit/16-bit NAND
Flash.". And then the TRM goes on to describe how 4-bit ECC is supposed
to work for 16-bit NAND. I could not find any errata related to this in
the errata document.

Lets apply everything together. This is a new feature, not a bug fix.
There is no need to rush it. Also, for the NAND part on LCDK, per the
micron datasheet, minimum of 4-bit ECC is needed.

I will take a look at other patches in this series.

Sekhar
