That patch was wrong. On imx6 "jffs2reset -y" has to be called in
platform_pre_upgrade() AKA before the switch_to_ramfs().

jffs2reset finds "rootfs_data" volume (emmc f2fs partition with
"rootfs_data" label) and erases all files from it:

It cannot be handled after switch_to_ramfs() as that function umounts

Big thanks for Petr for checking that with me!
