Here is another round of the mtdoops fixes for Artems tree. The patches
1. Keep track of mtdoops page cleanliness in an array. This allows
mtdoops_inc_counter to be called during panic (which fails in my
case with the current code in mtd->read, although I believe this is
2. Add a maximum MTD partition size for mtdoops.
3. Make page size configurable to support longer messages. Mainly
needed for patch 4, but also allows longer messages to be stored
during panics (when the next oops area cannot be erased).
4. Refactor mtdoops as a kmsg_dumper device instead of a console device.
Apart from the changelog in each patch, the patch that removes the
always-erase-empty-areas has been dropped.
