Who's Boris? And why should Boris be taking this patch? It's an MTD
patch.

What flash? We try to autodetect NAND as much as possible. Perhaps we
should be adding infrastructure support instead of hacking it with a DT
property.

If we really need the DT property, I'd prefer a generic
"nand-numer-of-partial-programs" or something like that, and if it's
equal to 1, then the flash doesn't support partial page programming.

But I'd prefer not to encode that in DT if possible.
