The Denx U-boot and Linux Guide (DULG) will tell you how to configure
the kernel for MTD devices and will give some good general information:

The partition information probably should go in a file that you create
for your board located at "drivers/mtd/maps/<your_file>.c"

I think this information just needs to be defined in your board's .h

config files. 

I hope this info helps.
