I agree that it should be included in all kernels but we use 3.3
and I can test it only on this one,
but It seems that this change is almost the same in all kernels
so I can make that for all kernels.
I also looked at patches and found also 478-mtd-partial_eraseblock_unlock.patch,
so I followed that way, other way both patches should be folded into 401-partial_eraseblock_write.patch.
