Can you help me understand? See comment below, I'm not sure how this
change changes the behavior.

Am I missing something here: Doesn't this do the same as before?

Before:
If info->flags & FPGA_MGR_PARTIAL_RECONFIG -> ctype.flags = 0 |
BIT(COMMAND_RECONFIG_FLAG_PARTIAL) -> 1
and ctype->flags = FULL_RECONFIG -> 0 else.

Now:
If info->flags & FPGA_MGR_PARTIAL_RECONFIG -> ctype.flags = PARTIAL_RECONFIG_FLAG -> 1
ctype->flags = FULL_REECONFIG_FLAG -> 0 else.

Am I missing something here? If I don't set the flag for partial
reconfig I'd end up with full reconfiguration in both cases?
If I do set the flag, I get partial reconfiguration in both cases?
