10 + ---help---
11 + MyLoader is a bootloader which allows the user to define partitions
12 + in flash devices, by putting a table in the second erase block
13 + on the device, similar to a partition table. This table gives the
14 + offsets and lengths of the user defined partitions.
15 +
16 + If you need code which can detect and parse these tables, and
17 + register MTD 'partitions' corresponding to each image detected,
18 + enable this option.
19 +
20 + You will still need the parsing functions to be called by the driver
21 + for your particular device. It won't happen automatically.
