How about: make a quick fix and release mtd-utils-1.4.6, then just kill

guess/assume/find the device node names - I think they always have to be
passed by the user instead. We can do the elimination the usual way -
first add the warning, then kill.
This is also a good way to go because mtd stuff does not have enough
people for excellent maintenance, and keeping it simpler should be
