主题: [PATCH RFC v2] mtd: ubi: Add fastmap sysfs attribute

The UBI device can be attached to a MTD device via fastmap by setting CONFIG_MTD_UBI_FASTMAP to 'y' (If there already exists a fastmap on the UBI device). To support some debugging scenarios, attaching process by fastmap can be confirmed in dmesg. If the UBI device is attached by fastmap, logs like following will appear in dmesg:

  ubi0: attached by fastmap

If multiple UBI devices are attached to multiple MTD devices at the same time, how to distinguish which UBI devices are successfully attached by fastmap? Extracting attaching information for each UBI device one by one from dmesg is a way. A better method is to record fastmap existence in sysfs, so it can be obtained by userspace tools.

This patch exposes fastmap on sysfs. Suppose you attach an UBI device to a MTD device by fastmap: if fastmap equals to '1', that is, the fastmap generated before last detaching operation is confirmed valid. Else, there may be some problems with old fastmap. Besides, userspace tool can also check whether the fastmap updating triggered by other operations (such as resize volume) is successful by reading this sysfs attribute.
