this patch gets rid of MEMGETOOBSEL/MEMSETOOBSEL ioctls and introduces a new one (MEMGETOOBAVAIL).
As page layout is moving towards being an internal NAND layer knowledge, there's no need to let the user lavel apps change or read it. On the other hand, user level apps will need to know how many bytes long a free OOB area is for this particular flash type.

The main difference with the previous patch
- no more reuse of old ioctl values
