Look at the 2.4-ac patches. They have all the necessary glue you need to 
add the fs/jffs2 directory to the build.

We have drivers for them, but just can't necessarily recognise them. Rather 
than doing a whole new driver, you need to just write a probe routine which 
passes control to the cfi_cmdset_000x drivers like cfi_probe.c does.

The actual commands are the same - CFI only defines how you probe the chips
to identify them.
