Gnagna, I screwed it up. I made the v2016.11.0 tag while my for-next/mtd
was checked out.
It seems last mtd patches took the fast lane and went into the November
release while they should be in the December release. So the following
went in early:

f160f86 of: of_find_path: Add support for new partition binding
1f2f980 of: partitions: Support new binding
1c7cf80 mtd: spi-nor: add MX25U2033E
7159d9d mtd: nand: nand_mxs: Fix readtotal calculation
0d68468 mtd: Make UBI detection more robust
