Right. UBI is rather slow in attaching MTD devices. Everything is explained
here:

http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org/doc/ubi.html#L_scalability
http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org/doc/ubifs.html#L_scalability

There is not very much you can do to speed it up but implement UBI2. UBIFS
would stay intact. There were discussions about this and it does not seem
to be impossibly difficult to do UBI2. Here are few ideas:
