interesting bug. felix recently added this "i crashed during firstboot,
lets retry" feature recently but it seesm that this works well on
classical (spi-)nor flash but fails on nand/ubi.
i've made a note and will look at this, however i am porting a new
target today so might not happen till start of the week. (unless felix
has time to look at it beforehand)
