    Sorry, I wonted to talk about situations when someone opens an ubiblk
    device while the underlying UBI volume is being removed, but then though
    this is trivial and forgot to erase the last sentence.

    Anyway, I suggest the following algorithm:

    1. Stick with the own cdev approach - the driver becomes very simple
    in this case - we review it.
    2. Once it is ready, or in parallel, you can play with the second
    approach and if you find it solid/nice, you can then provide a
    new version and/or the delta.

    The idea is that on step 1 we review/deal with other things, without
    being blocked by the ioctl stuff.
