No, you get it wrong. Its not my personal problem at all. It's not about
the board on my desk.

It's about some piece of software relying on a non guaranteed hardware

I'm looking into the variety of hardware which evolves around NAND flash
and I carefully look in which direction this is going.

I see that the near future will require more complexity in the nand code
and I'm looking for a sane solution for that. I'm not saying that its
wrong, when something uses a nice hardware feature, but my point still
stands that it is wrong to rely on a feature which is nowhere
