/*
 * Partition definition structure:
 *
 * An array of struct partition is passed along with a MTD object to
 * add_mtd_partitions() to create them.
 *
 * For each partition, these fields are available:
 * name: string that will be used to label the partition's MTD device.
 * size: the partition size; if defined as MTDPART_SIZ_FULL, the partition
 * 	will extend to the end of the master MTD device.
 * offset: absolute starting position within the master MTD device; if
 * 	defined as MTDPART_OFS_APPEND, the partition will start where the
 * 	previous one ended; if MTDPART_OFS_NXTBLK, at the next erase block.
 * mask_flags: contains flags that have to be masked (removed) from the
 * 	master MTD flag set for the corresponding MTD partition.
 * 	For example, to force a read-only partition, simply adding
 * 	MTD_WRITEABLE to the mask_flags will do the trick.
 *
 * Note: writeable partitions require their size and offset be
 * erasesize aligned (e.g. use MTDPART_OFS_NEXTBLK).
