No. NFTL _is_ the translation layer in (B). The SmartMedia format could be
used in its place. The other list you gave looks more like the existing 

However, in neither list is item 'C' correct. Neither the 'mtdblock' nor 
'mtdchar' code is involved at all. NFTL or the SmartMedia code talks 
directly to the MTD device provided by the NAND code.
