On one hand, I'd prefer for this to go through the linux-mtd, if noone objects,
as I'd also like to submit several (a pile) patches cleaning up mtd
partitioning, which would depend on this.

OTOH, I think there will be a cleanup of AT91 platform, which would bring
lot's of conflicts with this patch, if it goes through linux-mtd.

With best wishes
