No not another machine. The GTA04 uses the same SoC and NAND chip as the BeagleBoard,
so you can imagine GTA04 being a BeagleBoard + a lot of other things.

The key reason is to change the ecc scheme is to be compatible with the U-Boot used.

BootROM can only handle ham1 for the MLO. And there is no nand-ecc-opt
for each partition. So we either can't mix ECC schemes if we want to be able
to read/write MLO as the first partition from kernel.

No. We always used ham1 and bch8 wasn't working at all here. Therefore nobody
did use upstream kernel for NAND yet...

Well, the chip is recommended to use bch8 but BootROM imposes above mentioned limits.
