    Subject[PATCH 00/22 take 3] UBI: Unsorted Block Images
    Hello,

    This patch-set contains UBI, which stands for Unsorted Block Images. This
    is closely related to the memory technology devices Linux subsystem (MTD),
    so this new piece of software is from drivers/mtd/ubi.

    In short, UBI is kind of LVM layer but for flash (MTD) devices. It makes
    it possible to dynamically create, delete and re-size volumes. But the
    analogy is not full. UBI also takes care of wear-leveling and bad
    eraseblocks handling, so UBI completely hides 2 aspects of flash chips
    which make them very difficult to work with:

    1. wear of eraseblocks;
    2. bad eraseblocks.

    There is some documentation available at:
    http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org/doc/ubi.html
    http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org/faq/ubi.html

    The sources are available via the GIT tree:
    git://git.infradead.org/ubi-2.6.git (stable)
    git://git.infradead.org/~dedekind/dedekind-ubi-2.6.git (devel)

    One can also browse the GIT trees at http://git.infradead.org/

    This is the third iteration of the post which has fixed most of the stuff
    pointed to previously.
