* mtd: nand: expand nand_ecc_layout, deprecate ioctl ECCGETLAYOUTBrian Norris2010-10-241-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | struct nand_ecclayout is too small for many new chips; OOB regions can be as large as 448 bytes and may increase more in the future. Thus, copying that struct to user-space with the ECCGETLAYOUT ioctl is not a good idea; the ioctl would have to be updated every time there's a change to the current largest size. Instead, the old nand_ecclayout is renamed to nand_ecclayout_user and a new struct nand_ecclayout is created that can accomodate larger sizes and expand without affecting the user-space. struct nand_ecclayout can still be used in board drivers without modification -- at least for now. A new function is provided to convert from the new to the old in order to allow the deprecated ioctl to continue to work with truncated data. Perhaps the ioctl, the conversion process, and the struct nand_ecclayout_user can be removed altogether in the future. Note: There are comments in nand/davinci_nand.c::nand_davinci_probe() regarding this issue; this driver (and maybe others) can be updated to account for extra space. All kernel drivers can use the expanded nand_ecclayout as a drop-in replacement and ignore its benefits.

* MTD/JFFS2: remove CVS keywordsAdrian Bunk2008-06-041-2/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | Once upon a time, the MTD repository was using CVS. This patch therefore removes all usages of the no longer updated CVS keywords from the MTD code. This also includes code that printed them to the user. Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <bunk@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>
* [MTD] NAND Replace oobinfo by ecclayoutThomas Gleixner2006-05-291-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | The nand_oobinfo structure is not fitting the newer error correction demands anymore. Replace it by struct nand_ecclayout and fixup the users all over the place. Keep the nand_oobinfo based ioctl for user space compability reasons. Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
