Subject[PATCH] mtd: Edit comments on deprecation of ioctl ECCGETLAYOUT
** Applies to l2-mtd-2.6.git: master **

There were some improvements and additions necessary in the
comments explaining of the expansion of nand_ecclayout, the
introduction of nand_ecclayout_user, and the deprecation of the
ioctl ECCGETLAYOUT.

Also, I found a better placement for the macro MTD_MAX_ECCPOS_ENTRIES;
next to the definition of MTD_MAX_OOBFREE_ENTRIES in mtd-abi.h. The macro
is really only important for the ioctl code (found in drivers/mtd/mtdchar.c)
but since there are small edits being made to the user-space header, I
figured this is a better location.
