I am not 100% sure if this is what you meant by comparing the sizes of
the images, but I have made a ubifs image, so I thought I would show
the results.

I can't check what this equates to on a extracted image yet as I need
to modify u-boot a fair bit to get this to work, as currently uboot
doesn't build with ubifs support for the at91sam9xxx.

If you want the config I used to do further analysis just let me know.
