I am not sure I understand why this is necessary. You can already
access all of the IMX_BBU flags via imx_handler->handler.flags (which
is exactly what some of your code above does) and this forces all of
those "=" -> "|=" replacements below. Do we really need to copy one
set of flags into another?

Taking a step back, if we are reserving some of the BBU flags for
internal usage, can't we just drop the notion of internal flags
altogether and just use imx_handler->handler.flags for everything
including IMX_INTERNAL_FLAG_ERASE and IMX_INTERNAL_FLAG_NAND?

BIT(16) instead?
