Ah, very you much overestimate how good my memories are :)

It is more a worn out NAND flash without ECC and CRC... Writing is also much
slower than reading out :)

Well, this is a solution on kernel side and I asked if it has been suggested
upstream for a reason. The reason is that I doubt that it can easily be upstreamed
because maintainers will immediately point us to the UUID magic of U-Boot which
everyone seems to use successfully. Except us as I found with my current tests.

And since we have enough tough upstream topics I hesitate to add another one.
The goal of Letux is to come closer to upstream than go away...
