Maybe it is one of your fist contributions and I thank you very much
for trying to keep Google's tree aligned with mainline by upstreaming
this kind of change with enthusiasm, this is appreciated.

However, please note that a 2 days ping (and this is the second time you
do it) is a bit of an impatient move. Also, please have in mind the
maintainer's schedule: we freeze our branches about a week before
sending them to Linus. The SPI-NOR pull-request has been sent earlier
this week already so this patch will not reach mainline in v5.7 anyway.

Last generic comment, the subject prefix is wrong, so if you want the
SPI-NOR maintainer to care, better use the right one to catch his eye
;) "mtd: spi-nor: intel-spi:" seems more appropriate.

More comments below :)

When resending, please:
- increment the version with git-format-patch -v<x>
- write a changelog explaining what are the changes below the three
  dashes '---'.
- do not answer your previous version

s/id/Linux MTD device ID/             ^^

s/partdef/partition definition/                   ^^^^^^^

What about:

"The mtdparts cmdline parameter can define the partitioning of several
MTD devices, in which case"...

                                        ':'

What about:
      result as ':' is part of the parameter syntax.

Not sure the strrchr mentiont is relevant here. I'd drop it.

      Change the name attached to the Intel SPI device, ...

Change-ID can be dropped too.

Wrong alignment here I guess


Should these two changes be separated (changing the name, registering
the device with the cmdline parser)?
