This patch expands the MTD layout on the Netgear WNDR4300 and WNDR3700v4 to
allow use of the full 128MB flash.

I previously mentioned this patch here:

The original patch can be found here:
and has been mentioned on the forums and what not in the WNDR3700 thread:
https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=258054#p258054, which is where
I actually found it.

I'd like to see it upstream because I don't necessarily want to be using a
custom build forever. ;) I've had this running on my device without issue.

One thing - I'm admittedly new to OpenWRT and while I grasp the concept of the
MTD layout, I'd appreciate another set of eyes to make sure that everything
looks good. Namely I'm wondering if the flash is actually undercut a bit as
the original author has listed 122880k for the firmware, possibly leaving 1MB
as reserved at the end, taking the rest into account.

Otherwise if there is anything else needed to get this merged let me know.
