This patchset provides a proper support for flash device DT node with
"partitions" subnode using "compatible" property. It's already
documented in the: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/mtd/partition.txt

We believed a previous version 8 was ready to go, but soon after landing
in the linux-next we got a regression report from Peter.

This version takes a safe path by:
1) Respecting parsers order as specified in the default/driver-provided
2) Looking at "compatible" property only when "ofpart" type gets

I double-checked the code and cannot think of any regression this could
cause. I also hope this design (roughly discussed with Boris) can be
acceptable for the mtd subsystem.

This is of course 4.17 material at best.

Brian Norris (1):
  mtd: partitions: add of_match_table parser matching

Rafał Miłecki (3):
  mtd: partitions: add special treating for the "ofpart" parser type
  mtd: rename "ofpart" parser to "fixed-partitions" as it fits it better
  mtd: ofpart: add of_match_table with "fixed-partitions"
