[PATCH] mtd-utils: Fix incompatibility with kernel UBI block ioctls

The kernel UBI block ioctl definition is out of sync with the one
in mtd-utils resulting in ubiblock being unusable on current kernels.

Not sure if it is required to keep this backward compatible somehow?
Seems the definition of the ioctl is a leftover from a previous
version of the UBI block implementation.
