Subject: [PATCH 08/17] MTD: call remove notifiers before removing the device

Now that mtd block common layer is prepared for proper hotplug support, enable it here
Now all users of the mtd device have a chance to put the mtd device
when they are notified to do so, and they have to do so to make hotplug work.
