Do you plan on porting the smem stuff for partitioning that QSDK uses,
or do are you going to add partitions to the device tree file?
Unless there's a good reason to avoid it, I'm leaning towards the
latter, to give our kernel more control over what's going on.
For example, I'd like to call the partition with the kernel/fs 'ubi'
instead of 'rootfs', since rootfs is already used to auto-select the
root filesystem partition for auto-mounting.
