AFAIU this is about mtd driver, so volume_identify basically means

Can you do some extra debugging for me and check which exact part of
mtd_volume_identify has this side effect? I don't see which part of this
function would affect volume identification in further calls.

This may be a bit tricky to debug as you can't call volume_identify inside (at
least without some recursive check). Can you handle this somehow?

I'd like to make sure I understand this bug fully before pushing a fix.

Also: which target uses jffs2 with ubi?!
