From: Rafał Miłecki <rafal at milecki.pl>

This patchset adds support for subpartitions. This feature means support
for partitions that are containers with extra subpartitions / volumes.

Initially I wanted to keep my changes minimalistic but Brian pointed
that casting const to non-const is hacky and I should work on cleaner
solution instead.

Apart from trivial renames I needed to
1) Modify 1 line in allocate_partition
2) Add recursion to the deletion function & mtd_get_device_size

V6 mostly reworks flat structure of partitions into a tree one.

I hope this is acceptable & clean & clear enough.

Please let me know if you think further improvements should be added.

Rafał Miłecki (5):
  mtd: partitions: add helper for deleting partition
  mtd: partitions: rename "master" to the "parent" where appropriate
  mtd: partitions: add support for subpartitions
  mtd: partitions: add support for partition parsers
  mtd: extract TRX parser out of bcm47xxpart into a separated module
