I did reverse the first one:

|Support for the multi hw partitions of the Intel L18 flash chips.
|The non-partitioned cases should behave just like before.
|However I'd like for someone else to look at the added logic for the
|partitioned config in case I might have overlooked something.

|No, I'm nuts. My curent approach for L18 support is getting more

|anymore that's a sign that the whole thing should be scrapped. And

|Second attempt at supporting the multipartition L18 Intel flash chips.
|Again, the non-partitioned case should not have its logic altered so this
|is not supposed to break existing users. The partition support code could
|benefit from extra review though.
... plus a few subsequent revisions fixing a couple glitches here
