You do not need this option for use with the DiskOnChip devices. For
those, enable NFTL support (CONFIG_NFTL) instead.

+ Scan MTD block devices for partitions (ie. MBR, GPT, uImage.FIT, ...).
+ (NAND devices are omitted, ubiblock should be used instead when)

+ Unless your MTD partitions contain sub-partitions mapped using a
