actually i think we can see the same issue with the m25p80 driver ?
if i build it as a module and load/unload it, it crashes with same
name errors ...

root:/> rmmod m25p80
root:/> modprobe m25p80
m25p80 spi0.2: w25x10 (128 Kbytes)
Creating 3 MTD partitions on "m25p80":
0x00000000-0x00040000 : "bootloader(spi)"
mtd: partition "bootloader(spi)" extends beyond the end of device
"m25p80" -- size truncated to 0x20000
