I'm not aware of any plans like that, I wouldn't hold my breath. I'm
afraid you'll need to apply the patch yourself for the time being. The
number of downloads showed some interest in the matter though.

Special files named "erasecount" appear in the sysfs directories
corresponding to mtd devices, and contain (surprise) the erase count
(since reboot of course). E.g.

# find /sys/ -name erasecount | xargs -n 1 grep [0-9] /dev/null
