Patch one improves on blocklevel_smart_write(), which, until now has been
subtly broken and incredibly dumb. Only called by the gard tool.

The remain two patches address issues in how the gard tool uses the GUARD
partition, specifically, addresses some assumptions made when it was first
written that may have worked in the past but do not anymore.

Cyril Bur (3):
  libflash/blocklevel: Smarten up blocklevel_smart_write()
  external/gard: Update record clearing to match Hostboots expectations
  external/gard: Recover the entire gard partition
