CONFIG_MTD_REDBOOT_PARTS: RedBoot partition table parsing

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_MTD_REDBOOT_PARTS:

Help text

RedBoot is a ROM monitor and bootloader which deals with multiple 'images' in flash devices by putting a table one of the erase blocks on the device, similar to a partition table, which gives the offsets, lengths and names of all the images stored in the flash.

If you need code which can detect and parse this table, and register MTD 'partitions' corresponding to each image in the table, enable this option.

You will still need the parsing functions to be called by the driver for your particular device. It won't happen automatically. The SA1100 map driver (MTD_SA1100) has an option for this, for example.
