In the pm9g45 v3 patch series the MTD partition for Linux is named 
"kernel", and "defaultenv/bin/boot"
script looks for "/dev/nand0.kernel.bb".  In the same time all boards 
name Linux MTD partition
"kernel.bb". Is this "bad block aware device" driver scheduled to be 
implemented in barebox or
is it allowable to rename that partition to "kernel.bb" to un-broke the 
boot process?
