FWIW, fastmap sounds reasonable to me.

(aside from the fact that "fast" is the outcome of using the map,
whereas the map's definition is essentially a peb/leb map).


CONFIG_MTD_UBI_FASTMAP, ubi_find_fastmap(), ubi_scan_fastmap(),
ubi_read_fastmap(), ubi_update_fastmap() ...

all seem pretty explanatory IMO.

Using plain "map" (ubi_find_map, ubi_update_map) might also be an
option, however it might be less obvious.
