If the addressing between two Flash devices remains linear with no gaps, 
can they be part of the same mtd[n] partition, or must the next chip be

I have two 32-bit Flash devices (or so I'm told). Since this is a MIPS
application the
reset vector is 0xBFC00000. The Flash devices are 0xBE000000-BEFFFFFF and 
0xBF000000-BFFFFFFF, so I have 4Megs at the top of the second device, with
first device and lower 12Megs of the second giving me 28Megs of linear Flash
