PSP for DM8168 can't support NAND device with very large page size (4Kbytes/page with 224bytes oob)
I placed MT29F8G08ABABA nand flash on DM8168 board,
MT29F8G08ABABA is 4096 bytes per page with 224 bytes OOB.
Page size: 4320 (4096 + 224bytes)
Block size: 128 pages (512K +28K bytes)
Chip selects: 1
I have checked the current kernel code on PSP linux-2.6.37-psp04.00.00.13, I found that kernel can't support NAND device with very large page size (4Kbytes/page with 224bytes oob) .
please check drivers/mtd/nand/davinci_nand.c for more detail.
732733 /* 4KiB page chips are not yet supported. The eccpos from734 * nand_ecclayout cannot hold 80 bytes and change to eccpos735 * breaks userspace ioctl interface with mtd-utils. Once we736 * resolve this issue, NAND_ECC_HW_OOB_FIRST mode can be used737 * for the 4KiB page chips.738 *739 * TODO: Note that nand_ecclayout has now been expanded and can740 * hold plenty of OOB entries.741 */
so, when will TI fixed the issue? in next psp release?
