Subject[PATCH 2/2] mtd: ixp4xx: oops in ixp4xx_flash_probe
In commit "c797533 mtd: abstract last MTD partition parser argument" the
third argument of "mtd_device_parse_register()" changed from start address
of the MTD device to a pointer to a struct.

The "ixp4xx_flash_probe()" function was not converted properly, causing
this oops during boot:

Searching for RedBoot partition table in IXP4XX-Flash.0 at offset 0x7e0000
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 50000000
pgd = c0004000
