UBI: introduce atomic LEB change ioctl
We have to be able to change individual LEBs for utilities like ubifsck, ubifstune. For example, ubifsck has to be able to fix errors on the media, ubifstune has to be able to change the the superblock, hence this ioctl. Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>
