well, its just my application requires it .... I have to nftl_format because
I do not nftl_format at the 0x00000. There is another data of variable
lenght that I place before nftla data, so i have to nftl_format
0xSOME_OFFSET that is different evry time....
but ... if the driver doesn't come the application , the application will
have to go to the driver...
