Hello Richard,

Yes, it did.  I see the benefits of static UBI volumes, and I wish we had 
known this for our projects like 10 years ago.  However I also appreciated 
Wolfgang's input, it's basically what we do with more recent projects.  The 
possibility to easily upgrade kernel image and/or dts speeds up development a 
lot and causes less headaches on system upgrade.
