You know that you cannot do that and keep the content of your NAND
device right? You are basically enabling subpage access and UBI does
not support subpage changes.

Otherwise, I think subpage access are supported by the pxa driver.

It seems like the preferred path to proceed would be to port the current marvell-nand driver from Linux into u-boot but that seems a little more involved as it will require changes to the core nand driver as well. Are there any current plans to adapt these changes from v4.16+ of Linux? If so, is there a patch set somewhere that I could pull in to start testing?
