I thought we had said something about going through the UBI tree. But I
don't care.

I'm not sure what's happening with patches 3-5 yet either.

I'm applying patch 1 to l2-mtd.git. Depending on the following, I can
apply patch 2 as well...

...but this is still a bit awkward; AFAICT, if you use the default
Kconfig (MTD_UBI_BEB_LIMIT == 20) then this won't take effect. Accepting
the default seems a little different than "I chose a value in Kconfig."

I think we could probably reconcile this by dropping the Kconfig (as
Richard suggested), and defaulting to 20 if neither cmdline nor
autodetect (e.g., ONFI) have said otherwise.

Or if y'all agree that the behavior I mentioned is fine, I can still
take this on behalf of Richard.
