Thanks for proposing this change. Indeed we are aware of the problem
and the best solution that we could come up with was to create an
additional "unique_name" field to the mtd_info structure. This new
field would have the form:

[<parent-unique-name><separator>]<mtd-name>

The separator might be '~' (but I am completely open on that), and that
would give for instance:

my-controller~my-device~my-part~mysub-part

Then, you might use this mtd->unique_name instead of mtd->name. Would
you give this logic a try?

Thanks,
Miquèl
