It's because partitions were initially directly defined under the mtd
node, so, if you have an old DT you might have something like:

	mtdnode {
		reg = <0x0123000 0x40000>;
		#address-cells = <1>;
		#size-cells = <1>;

		partition@0 {
			reg = <0x0 0x20000>;
			...
		};
		...
	};

If we use such a DT with this patch applied, the NVMEM framework will
consider MTD partitions as nvmem cells, which is not what we want.
