Subject[PATCH] block2mtd: mtd: Present block2mtd timely on boot time
From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>

block2mtd: Ensure that block2mtd is presented in a timely fashion

Currently, a block MTD device is not presented to the system on time, in
order to start mounting the filesystems. This patch ensures that block2mtd
is presented at the right time, so filesystems can be mounted on boot time.
This issue was seen on BCM2708 (Raspberry Pi) systems when mounting JFFS2
block2mtd filesystems.
This patchset also adds a MTD device name and a timeout option to the driver.
Original patchset:
