Yeah, that's a good idea. David, can you please create a patch
against mtd-www.git?
Please also cover the existing powercut emulation of UBIFS.

The reason why David added emulation for UBI was to stress-test
UBI fastmap. The crucial operation of UBI changing the mapping between
LEB and PEBs. This is why this emulation intercepts writes to the UBI
VID header. For the sake of completeness interception of EC writes
is also possible.
