41b207a70d3a accidently changed the oob layout for nand when ECC doesn't use
the full available ecc reserved data.
This only affects controllers which use the default large page ops
nand_ooblayout_ecc_lp.

E.g. for davinci:
- nand has 2048 byte page, 64 byte oob
- 3 byte ecc every 512 byte using 1bit hw ecc
- requires 12 byte of oob space for ecc
- old layout reserved 24 byte based on 64 byte oob

Old layout started using byte from offset 40 while new layout
uses the last X bytes so it fits into the end of oob.
Meaning in this example the old layout uses byte 40-51, while
the new layout use byte 52-63.

Oh crap! I didn't notice that when switching to the ooblayout approach.

By doing that you break new users of the standard large page layout
which expect all ECC bytes to be placed at the end of the OOB region.
In all cases except the one you're fixing (Hamming in 1bit/512bytes) we
want the ECC start offset to be calculated based on the actual number
of ECC bytes, and not the max number of ECC bytes considering the
strongest case.

I'd recommend that you add a new layout for Hamming ECC in the 64 or 128
OOB bytes situation to fix the problem.

Thanks,

Boris
