While trying to improve the bcm963xx CFE partition parsing, I noticed
that it could be completely replaced by the generic physmap flash
driver using a custom parser.
The following patch set tries to accomplish that.
The first few patches clean take care of some minor code style issues
first to prevent checkpatch from complaining when moving code around.
After that I move the CFE partition parsing into a parser and make
bcm963xx-flash use it to make sure I don't create a non working version.
Finally I'll allow physmap_flash_data to take partition parser names for
overriding the default parsers list (the OF version already allows that),
let BCM63XX use it, and remove the bcm963xx-flash driver as it is now
completely replaced by physmap + CFE parser.
While most patches are limited to the MTD tree, patch 6/7 touches MIPS,
so it could go in either tree. But since the MTD tree already has some
modifications for bcm963xx-flash, I think it's better to let it go
through the MTD tree, to reduce the (potential for) conflicts.
P.S: This patchset is based on l2-mtd-2.6.git, which seems to be the
"correct" tree now (the website says mtd-2.6.git, but it doesn't look
like the correct one, having no commits).
