mmc: make number of mmcblk minors configurable

The old limit of number of minor numbers per mmcblk device was hardcoded
at 8.  This isn't enough for some of the more elaborate partitioning
schemes, for example those used by Chrome OS.

Since there might be a bunch of systems out there with static /dev
contents that relies on the old numbering scheme, let's make it a
build-time option with the default set to the previous 8.

Also provide a boot/modprobe-time parameter to override the config
default: mmcblk.perdev_minors.
