Subject: [PATCH 4.20 01/50] mtd: Make sure mtd->erasesize is valid even if the partition is of size 0

4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Boris Brezillon <bbrezillon@...nel.org>

commit ad4635153034c20c6f6e211e2ed3fd38b658649a upstream.

Commit 33f45c44d68b ("mtd: Do not allow MTD devices with inconsistent
erase properties") introduced a check to make sure ->erasesize and
->_erase values are consistent with the MTD_NO_ERASE flag.
This patch did not take the 0 bytes partition case into account which
can happen when the defined partition is outside the flash device memory
range. Fix that by setting the partition erasesize to the parent
erasesize.
