It doesn't give you OOB data, so I don't know if it will work with
YAFFS. It certainly works with JFFS2.

The JFFS2 support could be severely optimised on blkmtd though --
batching into 512 byte writes as we do for NAND but without the ECC or
putting cleanmarkers in the OOB area (or possibly without cleanmarkers
at all although that's harder).
