Hi Greg

This commit belongs to a series of 3 commits that are intended to be
used together. Currently the stable branches have only the first
commit from the series and we get a UBI speed regression because an
extra NAND page read is always performed for each access to a UBI LEB.

3e5e4335cc0ffd668054564b113fb3c9c97badb8 ubi: fastmap: Detect EBA
mismatches on-the-fly
34653fd8c46e771585fce5975e4243f8fd401914 ubi: fastmap: Check each
mapping only once
781932375ffc6411713ee0926ccae8596ed0261c ubi: fastmap: Correctly
handle interrupted erasures in EBA

This will in turn require also this follow-up patch:
25677478474a91fa1b46f19a4a591a9848bca6fb ubi: Initialize Fastmap
checkmapping correctly
