Subject[ 05/42] mtd: block2mtd: initialize writebufsize
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Artem Bityutskiy <>

commit b604387411ec6a072e95910099262616edd2bd2f upstream.

The writebufsize concept was introduce by commit
"0e4ca7e mtd: add writebufsize field to mtd_info struct" and it represents
the maximum amount of data the device writes to the media at a time. This is
an important parameter for UBIFS which is used during recovery and which
basically defines how big a corruption caused by a power cut can be.

However, we forgot to set this parameter for block2mtd. Set it to PAGE_SIZE
because this is actually the amount of data we write at a time.
