These two patches implement the ioctl UBI_IOCRNVOL for UBI devices and a new
command, 'ubirename' that calls the ioctl from the shell to rename UBI volumes.

The ioctl implementation was ported from the linux kernel v4.7.4, with minimal
changes; a further change was needed for the function 'ubi_rename_volumes()' in
drivers/mtd/ubi/vmt.c to also change the name(s) of the file(s) corresponding to
the renamed UBI volumes under /dev/...

Expecially this last change needs to be reviewed and validated by a barebox
developer more experienced than me.

        
Giorgio Dal Molin (2):
  mtd: UBI: add support (ioctl) for renaming ubi volumes.
  commands: ubi: added the new command 'ubirename' to rename ubi
    volumes.
