OK, seems reasonable to use mtdparts, except that I think
it would be useful to be able to supply arguments in an incremental way
so you can build up your partition table using multiple mtdparts commands.

Also, I am not sure that mtdparts know about 1056 byte pages.
Maybe "k" could mean 1056 for dataflash parts?
