CONFIG_MTD_PARTITIONED_MASTER: Retain master device when partitioned

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_MTD_PARTITIONED_MASTER:

Help text

For historical reasons, by default, either a master is present or several partitions are present, but not both. The concern was that data listed in multiple partitions was dangerous; however, SCSI does this and it is frequently useful for applications. This config option leaves the master in even if the device is partitioned. It also makes the parent of the partition device be the master device, rather than what lies behind the master.
