I finally located the source of slowdown.
It appears to be caused by too large caching I did (5 erase blocks).
If I cache one block, write speed nears 1 MB/s.
As a bonus that makes the FTL much simplified.

Another small flaw that currently exists in my FTL is that it ignores
the underlying badblock support from mtd driver and requeres it to
expose the two bad block bytes in the oob layout, I think I can avoid
that after all.

Other that that, everything is just perfect.

I post updated patchset soon.

Best regards,
Maxim Levitsky
