I just wondering that there is no MTD support for i2c eeproms in
MTD (also not in linux) ... okay, flash has blocked base access,
while i2c eeprom can have byte accesses ... but does this really
is a show stopper for adding i2c eeproms to MTD layer?

You already use the MTD "fixed-partitions" property, which is fine.

May it s worth to look into using mtd layer also for i2c eeproms?
