1. NAME

search_bbt - [GENERIC] scan the device for a specific bad block table

2. SYNOPSIS

int search_bbt(struct mtd_info *  mtd , uint8_t *  buf , struct nand_bbt_descr *  td );

3. ARGUMENTS

mtd
    MTD device structure

buf
    temporary buffer

td
    descriptor for the bad block table

4. DESCRIPTION

Read the bad block table by searching for a given ident pattern. Search is preformed either from the beginning up or from the end of the device downwards. The search starts always at the start of a block. If the option NAND_BBT_PERCHIP is given, each chip is searched for a bbt, which contains the bad block information of this chip. This is necessary to provide support for certain DOC devices.

The bbt ident pattern resides in the oob area of the first page in a block.
