Subject: [PATCH] dt-bindings: mtd-partitions: Export special values

There are special "offset" and "size" values defined and documented in
linux/mtd/partitions.h:

// consume as much as possible, leaving size after the end of partition.

// the partition will start at the next erase block.

// the partition will start where the previous one ended.

(Though not explicitly, they are compared against variables in uint64_t
in drivers/mtd/mtdpart.c, so they had better be considered as such.)

// the partition will extend to the end of the master MTD device.

These special values could be used to define partitions automatically
fitting to the size of the master MTD device at runtime.

However, these values used not to be exported to dt-bindings, thus
seldom used before, since they might have been only used in numeric form,
such as "(-1) (-3)" for MTDPART_OFS_RETAIN.

Now, they are exported in dt-bindings/mtd/partitions.h as 32-bit cell
values, so 2-cell addressed should be defined to use special offset values,
such as "MTDPART_OFS_SPECIAL MTDPART_OFS_RETAIN" for MTDPART_OFS_RETAIN in
linux/mtd/partitions.h. An example is added to fixed-partitions.yaml.
