     OK. please show your opinion about the patches, where need to
improve. I know the code style is too diffrent. lack of code comments,
     You can teach me to meet your requriement. If you think it's more
quick to do it by yourself, just need me to explain some place you do
not clear. OK. All I am asking for is to merge this new feature
upstream as soon as possible. I do not care copyright much. In fact I
will be so happy to see you turn those code to your style. I mean I am
lack of professional program skill. I need someone like you guide me
to be professional, to improve my skill. Nothing better than implement
the same idea but different code formulate to see the ..... sorry, i
don't know how to express, I think you knows : )

      In fact, the patches should be more easier done by UBI awared
and Block device layer awared developer. As you can see in my patches,
90% was direct copy-plase from mtdblock.c mtd_blktrans.c and some
sections of UBI code. I was wondering why Artem Bityutskiy, David
Woodhouse, Nicolas Pitre do not unite together to finish a good NFTL
which is so in need by lots of people. To make linux better and
better. Then I see it may be imply a competition in you. Oh, come on,
you are all so greate! all the best!

Best wishes,
