The following commit in linux-next appears to be the culprit:

commit 1a6bc893044b961caae1c5a9c6c2065e608da427
Author: Dmitry Eremin-Solenikov <dbaryshkov@xxxxxxxxx>
Date:   Sun May 29 21:32:33 2011 +0400

    mtd: prepare to convert of_mtd_parse_partitions to partition parser

    Prepare to convert of_mtd_parse_partitions() to usual partitions parser:
    1) Register ofpart parser
    2) Internally don't use passed device for error printing
    3) Add device_node to mtd_part_parser_data struct
    4) Move of_mtd_parse_partitions from __devinit to common text section
    5) add ofpart to the default list of partition parsers

    Signed-off-by: Artem Bityutskiy <dedekind1@xxxxxxxxx>

It adds a module_init() call to ofpart.c which does not work the way
that ofpart.c is linked to mtdcore.o.  Seems like that commit series
still needs work.
