block: change config option name for cmdline partition parsing
Recently commit bab55417b10c ("block: support embedded device command line partition") introduced CONFIG_CMDLINE_PARSER. However, that name is too generic and sounds like it enables/disables generic kernel boot arg processing, when it really is block specific. Before this option becomes a part of a full/final release, add the BLK_ prefix to it so that it is clear in absence of any other context that it is block specific. In addition, fix up the following less critical items: - help text was not really at all helpful. - index file for Documentation was not updated - add the new arg to Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt - clarify wording in source comments Signed-off-by: Paul Gortmaker <email@example.com> Cc: Jens Axboe <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Cai Zhiyong <email@example.com> Cc: Wei Yongjun <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <firstname.lastname@example.org>

bool "Block device command line partition parser"
- Parsing command line, get the partitions information.
+ Enabling this option allows you to specify the partition layout from
+ the kernel boot args. This is typically of use for embedded devices
+ which don't otherwise have any standardized method for listing the
+ partitions on a block device.
+ See Documentation/block/cmdline-partition.txt for more information.
