Yep. Just waiting for Linus to release 4.10-rc1 to rebase my nand/next
branch and start applying new patches. It should be queued for 4.11 and
backported to all previous release (thanks to the Cc-stable + Fixes
tags).

I didn't plan to take these fixes in one of the 4.10-rc fixes PR, since
this bug is here for several releases, and no-one complained before.
Let me know if you think otherwise, I'll add my ack and ask Brian to
take it in the MTD tree.

Regards,

Boris
