Subject: [PATCH v3] mtd: Fix gluebi NULL pointer dereference caused by ftl notifier

If both flt.ko and gluebi.ko are loaded, the notiier of ftl
triggers NULL pointer dereference when trying to access
‘gluebi->desc’ in gluebi_read().

ubi_gluebi_init
  ubi_register_volume_notifier
    ubi_enumerate_volumes
      ubi_notify_all
        gluebi_notify    nb->notifier_call()
          gluebi_create
            mtd_device_register
              mtd_device_parse_register
                add_mtd_device
                  blktrans_notify_add   not->add()
                    ftl_add_mtd         tr->add_mtd()
                      scan_header
                        mtd_read
                          mtd_read_oob
                            mtd_read_oob_std
                              gluebi_read   mtd->read()
                                gluebi->desc - NULL

Detailed reproduction information available at the link[1],

The solution for the gluebi module is to run jffs2 on the UBI
volume without considering working with ftl or mtdblock.[2].
Therefore, this problem can be avoided by preventing gluebi
from creating mtdblock devices.

Fixes: 2ba3d76a1e29 ("UBI: make gluebi a separate module")
