Hi Miquèl,

I'm wondering if we could register up a custom mtd partition parser from the 
board file.  It could return a pointer to a statically defined table.  Then we 
could add its name to the list of parsers the driver is going to try if the 
board is enabled in .config.
Would that be acceptable from the MTD subsystem point of view?

Thanks,
Janusz
