mtdpart.c not compiled with mtdcore.c ?

Any reason that mtdpart.c is not compiled by default with mtdcore.c when
CONFIG_MTD is "y" ?

The problem is that if one hacks physmap.c to add partitions for one's
own hardware then add_mtd_partitions() are unresolved till one
manually modifies the Makefile.

Can we enable mtdpart.o by default in cases?
