[RESEND PATCH 0/2] mtd: Harmonize implementations of OTP write and _get_{fact, user}_prot_info

Hi all,

In the discussion on my patchset for the OTP support for
drivers/mtd/chips/cfi_cmdset_0002.c [1-5], Artem requested two changes in the
current code of the OTP write functions and the _get_{fact,user}_prot_info

These two patches are an attempt to make the requested changes.

The first patch adds a retlen parameter to the _get_fact_prot_info and
_get_user_prot_info functions and thus harmonizes the implementation
with those of the write and read functions.

The second patch fixes a problem that I earlier addressed in [1]. After
the discussion about this patch on the mtd mailing list, I think that the
correct behavior of the write function should be the one specified in [6]:
Try to write as many bytes as possible and return the number of bytes
that were written. If no data could be written due to lack of OTP memory,
return -ENOSPC.

Artem, would you please have a look at these patches? I would like to know
if I understood you correctly, or if I missed something here. Please note
that I cannot test these patches since I do not have the hardware. The
patches are compile tested only. If these patches are ok, I will also
respin the OTP support patches for cfi_cmdset_0002.

Thank you!

Best regards,
