Here is two patch to add support for UBI and UBIFS in libblkid
With that, if you type "blkid" it will show you UBIFS filesystem.

The thing is that I'm not sure this patch is really usefull as UBIFS
is a "nodev" filesystem, and it doesn't deal with block devices.

I first started theses patch to be able to do stuff like:
mount /dev/ubi0_0 /mnt/test but we need to patch UBIFS for that.

So, do you think we should be able to do that ? If it's ok, these
two patch are a first step.
