You're right about one thing: These images do use ubifs, however only as
an overlay. The base filesystem is squashfs, just like on all those NOR
flash based devices (which use jffs2 as overlay).

I might accept a patch that adds ubifs as an option, if you can convince
me that it's actually useful, but replacing the squashfs images with
ubifs ones is not an option.
