mtd: nand: initialize bitflip_threshold prior to BBT scanning
As of edbc454 [mtd: driver _read() returns max_bitflips; mtd_read() returns -EUCLEAN], 'mtd->bitflip_threshold' must be set for mtd devices having ECC, prior any 'mtd_read()' call. Otherwise, 'mtd_read()' will falsely return -EUCLEAN. Normally, 'mtd->bitflip_threshold' is initialized when the MTD is added. However, this is too late for NAND MTDs, as 'scan_bbt()' is invoked prior the existing initialization of 'mtd->bitflip_threshold'. This is a problem since 'scan_bbt()' calls 'mtd_read()', in the case of a flash-based bad block table. It resulted in a falsely reported bitflips indication during BBT read, which lead to constant scrubbing of the flash BBT blocks. Initialize 'mtd->bitflip_threshold' to its default value (if not already set by the driver), prior to invocation of 'scan_bbt()'.
