#7399 closed defect (fixed)

OFW NAND fixbbt selftest function doesn't work

Reported by: wmb@… Owned by: wmb@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ofw - open firmware Version: Q2D16
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Deployments affected: Action Needed: add to build
Verified: no


The following OFW command is supposed to do an extensive test of the NAND FLASH, adding newly-found bad blocks to the NAND bad block table.

ok test /nandflash::fixbbt

It doesn't work - it claims that lots of blocks are bad when they really aren't, and doesn't update the table. This applies to OFW Q2D16 and earlier.

The workaround:

  ok dev /nandflash
  ok : xx dup aa ;  patch xx aa full
  ok dend

After that, the "test /nandflash::fixbbt" command will work.
