commit 176bf2e0f10ecf1d20a97db3bd5bb2e6ba0b5668 ("physmap: fix leak of
memory returned by parse_mtd_partitions") deals with a memory leak and
frees the pointer array of mtd_partition after the call to
add_mtd_partitions().  the problem is that mtd_table[x]->name still points
to the freed memory.

Aldo physmap_flash_remove() should call del_mtd_partitions() or
del_mtd_device() only once.
