Subject: [RFC RFT PATCH v2 1/2] dt-bindings: mtd: partitions: Document new partition-dynamic nodes

Document new partition-dynamic nodes used to provide an OF node for
partition registred at runtime by parsers. This is required for nvmem
system to declare and detect nvmem-cells.

With these special partitions, only the label is required as the parser
will provide reg and offset of the mtd. NVMEM will use the data from the
parser and provide the NVMEM cells declared in the DTS, "connecting" the
dynamic partition with a static declaration of cells in them.

+title: Dynamic Partition
+
+description: |
+  This binding describes a single flash partition that is dynamically allocated
+  by a dedicated parser that is not a fixed-partition parser. To declare a
+  partition the label is required. This can be used to give a dynamic partition
+  an OF node so that subsystems like NVMEM can work and provide NVMEM Cells to
+  the system. An example is declaring the partition label and all the NVMEM
+  cells in it. The parser will detect the correct reg and offset and the NVMEM
+  will register the cells in it based on the data extracted by the parser.
