Artem Bityutskiy - Dec. 30, 2011, 3:34 p.m.
From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com>

1. Teach 'mtd_write()' function to return '-EROFS' if the write method
   is undefined, and remove the corresponding check from
   'default_mtd_writev()'.
2. Do not test 'retlen' for NULL - it cannot be NULL.
3. Few minor coding stile clean-ups.
4. Add a kerneldoc comment

Additionally, minor fixes to the kerneldoc comments of the neighbor function.
