it will create an empty BBT table without considering vendor's BBT
information. Vendor's information may be unavailable if the NAND
controller has a different DATA & OOB layout or this information may be
allready purged.

Pushed to l2-mtd-2.6.git, and the nandsim patch as well.

git.infradead.org is down now for some reasons, but when it is up, I'll
push my tree out.
