+ S3C24XX NAND Support
+ ====================
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+Small Page NAND
+---------------
+
+The driver uses a 512 byte (1 page) ECC code for this setup. The
+ECC code is not directly compatible with the default kernel ECC
+code, so the driver enforces its own OOB layout and ECC parameters
+
+Large Page NAND
+---------------
+
+The driver is capable of handling NAND flash with a 2KiB page
+size, with support for hardware ECC generation and correction.
+
+Unlike the 512byte page mode, the driver generates ECC data for
+each 256 byte block in an 2KiB page. This means that more than
+one error in a page can be rectified. It also means that the
+OOB layout remains the default kernel layout for these flashes.
