Some drivers call both add_mtd_device() and add_mtd_partitions(). The
mtd_device is used to access whole flash area (like /dev/hda). How do
you think of these usage patterns?

maps/edb7312.c
maps/mbx860.c
maps/plat-ram.c
nand/cafe_nand.c
nand/diskonchip.c
nand/ndfc.c

Automatic fallback to mtd_device in parse_mtd() is convenient but
somewhat unflexible...
