I wonder if it's not better to create those files only when
mtd->dbg.part{name,id} != NULL. This way you could get rid of the
if (!mtd->dbg.part{name,id}) test in the show funcs, and most
importantly, the user would know when this fields are not present
without having to read the file and test for an empty string.

This comment is no longer valid: the whole struct contains debugfs
stuff :P.
