It's true that "c->cleanmarker_size was 0" for NAND flash.
But besides  NAND flash, "c->cleanmarker_size was 0" is also true
for dataflash. That means that cleanmarker was not needed for
dataflash for some reason that I don't know :)
Now eraseblock header is needed for any kind of flash. So I removed
the original (c->cleanmarker_size == 0).
