We willprovide an extension soon; we're going to create an additional
variable 'mtddevnum'.

Note: the numbering will be exactly as partitions are listed  in  the
$mtdparts  variable.  This  way  user  can fully control the indexing
sequence but it is also a bit more troublesome you have to take  care
about the order of devices in $mtdparts.

But the greater flexibilty seems to me to be a big advantage over any
fixed scheme which cannot know about the init sequence in  the  Linux

Is this OK with you?
