The primary goal of this series is to enable using the 1st bootable
partition as the default partition for disk boot related commands. Every
command that takes a "<dev>[:<part>]" option duplicates the same parsing
code, so this series consolidates the parsing code to a single function.

There are obviously other block device commands that need to be converted
still. I will do these once there is some basic agreement on the initial


Rob Herring (5):
  disk/part: check bootable flag for DOS partitions
  disk/part: introduce get_device_and_partition
  cmd_ext2: use common get_device_and_partition function
  cmd_fat: use common get_device_and_partition function
  cmd_scsi: use common get_device_and_partition function
