[PATCH] [update] treat OOB as a single chunk of oobavail bytes

the patch attached implements treating the OOB data as a chunk of _free_ OOB bytes of mtd->oobavail size.
This is what was announced several times. This patch is a working one (verified with yaffs2 and jffs2), however, it's not completely ready to work with 16bit NAND flashes.
Anyway, I'd like to ask for a permission to commit it to let other people start using it/report the problems/etc. etc.

The main difference with the previous one is
- fixed fill_autooob_layout (zero'ing the last field)

Of course input of any kind is welcome.

Best regards,
