I see that the nand/fixes and spi-nor/fixes branch are already there [1].
You can add:

mtd-fixes git git://git.infradead.org/linux-mtd.git#master

You can also remove the mtd entry [2], since mtd-2.6.git is just a sym
link to linux-mtd.git, so it will just be a duplicate of the mtd-fixes
entry. You can also rename the l2-mtd entry [3] into mtd.

Regards,

Boris
