I'd like to first take patches from Kevin, which move libmtd from
ubi-utils and make mtd utilities like flash_eraseall start using libmtd.
It would be nice then if you enhanced limbtd to serve your perposes and
also used it, instead of direct ioctl calls. libmtd should also be used
to get information about which features are supported.
Will this upset you much :-) ?
You can find Kevin's patches I refer in the MTD miling list. The last
series to the date are:
[PATCHv2 1/5] mtd-utils: move libmtd source files to lib/ subdirectory
Could you please take a look at them, review them, then when everyone is
happy, we merge them to mtd-utils, then you can do your changes on top,
and we also add the patch from Ladislav on top.
Does this sound OK for you?
