No, not yet. Nobody's yet shown much interest in creating one.

If SmartMedia contains NAND flash chips, then probably, yes. With the right 
glue layer this ought to be possible.

mtd/devices are complete standalone device drivers for MTD devices.

mtd/maps contains 'mapping' drivers which provide just access to the bus on 
which memory chips reside. The actual chip drivers are in mtd/chips. Those 
are only for memory-mapped chips though, not NAND chips.
