Subject: [PATCH] mtd: phram: Allow multiple phram devices on cmd line

Subject: [PATCH] mtd: phram: Allow multiple phram devices on cmd line

Allow the phram module the ability to create multiple phram mtd
devices via the kernel command line.

Currently the phram module only allows a single mtd device to be
created via the kernel command line. This is due to the phram
module having to store the values until it is initialised
later. This storage is done using a single char[] meaning when
the module_param_call is made the previous value is overidden.

This change modifies the phram system to use a char[][] allowing
multiple devices to be created.

The array size if controlled using the new config option
CONFIG_MTD_PHRAM_MAX_CMDLINE_ARGS that allows the maximum
number of devices to be specified. Currently this option
defaults to a value of 1 leaving the behaviour unchanged.

If the array is full a message is printed to the console and the
module_param_call returns.

To test, in all cases an area of memory needs to be reserved via
the command line e.g. memmap=10M$114M

To test with phram build into the kernel on the command line add
the following:

phram.phram=alpha,114Mi,1Mi phram.phram=beta,115Mi,1Mi

If CONFIG_MTD_PHRAM_MAX_CMDLINE_ARGS is left as default i.e. 1
then the first device, alpha will be created only. If the value of
CONFIG_MTD_PHRAM_MAX_CMDLINE_ARGS is increased to 2 or more then
both alpha and beta will be created.

To test phram built as a module insmod with the following arguments:

phram=gamma,114Mi,1Mi phram=delta,115Mi,1Mi

In this case two devices should be created.
