kernel: backport mtd commit converting partitions doc syntax



1. It's useful for developing & validating DTS files inside OpenWrt
2. This will allow backporting later changes that depend on it

Subject: [PATCH] dt-bindings: mtd: partition: Document the slc-mode property
Add a boolean property to force a specific partition attached to an MLC
NAND to be accessed in an emulated SLC mode this making this partition
immune to paired-pages corruptions.

Subject: [PATCH] dt-bindings: mtd: convert "fixed-partitions" to the
json-schema
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
This standardizes its documentation, allows validating with Makefile
checks and helps writing DTS files.
Noticeable changes:
1. Dropped "Partitions can be represented by sub-nodes of a flash
device." as we also support subpartitions (don't have to be part of
flash device node)
2. Dropped "to Linux" as bindings are meant to be os agnostic.

Available bindings are listed in the "partitions" subdirectory.
-Fixed Partitions
-================
-
-Partitions can be represented by sub-nodes of a flash device. This can be used
-on platforms which have strong conventions about which portions of a flash are
-used for what purposes, but which don't use an on-flash partition table such
-as RedBoot.
-
-The partition table should be a subnode of the flash node and should be named
-'partitions'. This node should have the following property:
-- compatible : (required) must be "fixed-partitions"
-Partitions are then defined in subnodes of the partitions node.
+Deprecated: partitions defined in flash node
+============================================
For backwards compatibility partitions as direct subnodes of the flash device are
supported. This use is discouraged.
NOTE: also for backwards compatibility, direct subnodes that have a compatible
string are not considered partitions, as they may be used for other bindings.
-
-#address-cells & #size-cells must both be present in the partitions subnode of the
-flash device. There are two valid values for both:
-<1>: for partitions that require a single 32-bit cell to represent their
- size/address (aka the value is below 4 GiB)
-<2>: for partitions that require two 32-bit cells to represent their
- size/address (aka the value is 4 GiB or greater).
-
-Required properties:
-- reg : The partition's offset and size within the flash
-
-Optional properties:
-- label : The label / name for this partition. If omitted, the label is taken
- from the node name (excluding the unit address).
-- read-only : This parameter, if present, is a hint to Linux that this
- partition should only be mounted read-only. This is usually used for flash
- partitions containing early-boot firmware images or data which should not be
- clobbered.
-- lock : Do not unlock the partition at initialization time (not supported on
- all devices)
-- slc-mode: This parameter, if present, allows one to emulate SLC mode on a
- partition attached to an MLC NAND thus making this partition immune to
- paired-pages corruptions
