Thanks for testing. Could you share what use case you have for this?

Rob had objections to this approach:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-devicetree/20200512141834.GA3023@bogus/

But solving it within a partition doesn't address my original problem:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/f03ecee7-c4b6-7a59-7ab8-42c5dfcaffc4@pengutronix.de/

I just sent out a v4, which added you in CC.

Cheers,
Ahmad
