With the old version we didn't get a power-cut at all, unless power-cuts
were first globally enable by writing "1" to 

This is still possible!

What wasn't possible before was to test only one filesystem image if
there are more. The way I see it, my change extends what is possible,
it doesn't limit it.

You are correct of course, that power-cut during remount isn't tested if
the test isn't run with global enable, but remounting is not a normal
use-case (!?) for someone using ubifs as the rootfs.
