What? I mean logical partitions, or any kind of logical layer. In
other words, I want to have /dev/nftla1 and /dev/nftla2, not
/dev/nftla and /dev/nftlb

According documentation, nftl_format is designed to "unhose" virgin
chip and destroys firmware BIOS as said recently (in this list).
Isn't it?

In other words, I think that nftl_format can be compared with
fdformat, not mformat - they operates on different layers.

Best regards,
