Some NAND controllers change the ECC bytes when OOB is written with ECC
This is a problem in brcmnand, since adding JFFS2 cleanmarkers after the page
has been erased will change the ECC bytes to 0 and the controller will think
the block is bad.
It can be fixed by using write_oob_raw, which ensures ECC is disabled.
