On NAND we store the cleanmarker (markes a clean erased block) in the out of 
band area. So the cleanmarker node should be omitted when creating the fs 
image. Add -n to the options

That way the customer can tell who is the engineer and who is the 
salesman (and therefore whom to believe.). Ties cut off blood flow 
to the brain, making it easier for the salesmen to do their jobs."
