    Flash lab: make sure people don't use U-Boot from MMC
    - Will need to investigate the issue
      With U-Boot build from the MMC configuration, U-Boot
      sees a subpage of 512 bytes (instead of 2048) on the Xplained board,
      and this is incompatible with what Linux sees. Hence U-Boot
      cannot use a UBI space that Linux can use.
