It varies. The first NAND flash datasheets I looked at said ten. Or it 
might be the errata sheet for the Toshiba chips which says that.

But it doesn't matter. We want to batch writes and only do one write per
page, with page-based ECC. See my ramblings of last week on how we can do 
this. There's also a half-arsed attempt at implementing it in CVS, on the 
jffs2-nand-branch. Don't bother looking at it unless you're prepared to 
hack on it though. It doesn't have a whelk's chance in a supernova of 
actually working - I just thought it might help to illustrate what I meant.
