[Bug 1499512] Re: The MMC_BLOCK_MINORS config value is set too low


Can you use the module parameter perdev_minors to work around this
limitation ?

module_param(perdev_minors, int, 0444);
MODULE_PARM_DESC(perdev_minors, "Minors numbers to allocate per device");

  The MMC_BLOCK_MINORS config value is set too low

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  We have some use cases where we'd like to be able to access 8 or more
  partitions on an MMC device. Unfortunately, the MMC_BLOCK_MINORS
  config value is set to 8, which means we can only access the entire
  device and 7 partitions.

  If this could be set to 24 or 32, it would be helpful.
