Based on this post:

I am inferring that the following attributes are wanted in the MTD
sysfs interface:

1) mtd_info_user fields - type, flags, size, erasesize, writesize,
oobsize.  So far we have "type," but it should be easy to add the

2) region_info_user fields?  Not really sure how this would work.
Maybe a separate subdirectory for each region?
