Subject: [PATCH 00/18] External ECC engines & Macronix support

Hello all,

This series is now stable and brings support for external/modular ECC
engines, and let SPI controller using the ECC framework.

As a first example, Macronix ECC engine can be used as an
external engine (takes the data, proceeds to the calculations, writes
back the ECC bytes) or as a pipelined engine doing on-the-fly
calculations (which is very common in the raw NAND world).

In the device tree, the ECC engine should be described as a separated DT
node. Then:
* external case: the flash node should provide a nand-ecc-engine
  property pointing to the ECC engine node.
* pipelined case: the flash node should provide a nand-ecc-engine
  property pointing to the SPI controller, itself with another
  nand-ecc-engine property pointing at the ECC engine node.

This series comes with a bunch of improvements on the binding side as


Changes since the RFC:
* Rebased on top of v5.15-rc1.
* Fixed the dirmap configuration.
* Added the various tags received.
* Fixed the bindings as reported by the robots.
* Fixed the return value of the helper counting bitflips.
* Included a fix from Jaime Liao in the external pattern logic.
* Added the yaml conversion of Macronix SPI controller description.
* Added the yaml conversion of the SPI-NAND description.
* Created a nand-chip.yaml file to share properties between SPI-NAND and
  raw NAND.
