though I get various messages about formatting and erase errors for blocks
in the BBT.
I would be glad to test code for INFTL BBT support if anyone wants to pass

I've looked briefly at docprobe.c, doc2000.c, inftlcore.c and
inftlmount.c. According to
the archives, it may not be a large effort to implement BBT awareness. Can
give me some pointers as to what needs to be done and in which functions?
