I hope Tanya is allowed to share her code soon such that I can review it.
Adding fastmap to ubinize is not trivial as you can run into problems
when your flash has bad blocks.
i.e, If fastmap refers to PEB XY but PEB XY is bad. Then the flasher
would have to be a) UBI aware and b) had to fixup the fastmap on-fly.
