* Partition definition structure:
* An array of struct partition is passed along with a MTD object to
* add_mtd_partitions() to create them.
* For each partition, these fields are available:
* name: string that will be used to label the partition's MTD device.
* size: the partition size; if defined as MTDPART_SIZ_FULL, the partition
* will extend to the end of the master MTD device.
* offset: absolute starting position within the master MTD device; if
* defined as MTDPART_OFS_APPEND, the partition will start where the
* previous one ended; if MTDPART_OFS_NXTBLK, at the next erase block.
* mask_flags: contains flags that have to be masked (removed) from the
* master MTD flag set for the corresponding MTD partition.
* For example, to force a read-only partition, simply adding
* MTD_WRITEABLE to the mask_flags will do the trick.
* Note: writeable partitions require their size and offset be
* erasesize aligned (e.g. use MTDPART_OFS_NEXTBLK).
