I am not sure if the current patch to GRUB recognizes INFTL.  I know
that the NFTL block access layer did work.  The beginning of the NFTL
layer must not be overwritten by the GRUB firmware.  Once you burned the
firmware, you may need to re-format the rest of the chip.  The size of
the GRUB firmware rounded to the next erase sector boundary could be
given to the format utility as the start offset for the NFTL layer.
