Boris BREZILLON - Feb. 11, 2014, 9:46 p.m.
Add support for NAND partitions, and inderectly for per partition ECC
config.
Provide helper functions to add/delete/allocate nand partitions.
NAND core code now make use of the partition specific nand_ecc_ctrl struct
(if available) when doing read/write operations.
