The style we prefer for error checking is:

ret = function();
if (ret)
do someting;

instead of:

if (function())

Anyway, I really don't know if it can happen or not. I suppose it does.
What I don't understand is your "oob = chip->oob_poi + oobecc.offset".
If you expect an error, then you should not update this pointer, right?

Don't you need to use 2 * i instead of i here? Following your other
contribution, sections are distributed like "data/ecc/data/ecc/etc".

No problem ;) I meant both actually, And I think you should name the
oob pointer ecc_bytes.
