I mean we should keep the batch write. Thats correct. But we can leave the 
cleanmarker where it is now and write it without ECC and put the rest of the 
page with ECC. On small NAND devices we have only 8byte spare area per block. 
We need 3 byte for ECC and at least 1 byte for flags. Then the cleanmarker 
area is reduced to 4 bytes. Is that enough ?

I will send it in the afternoon
