I'm not sure what form those flash-images are in. They may be a similar 
dump to the one you'd get from the 'nanddump' program, in which case you 
could write it back with the 'nandwrite' program and the MTD drivers.

It would appear as a block device. But last time I knew, I believe Igel were
shipping the M-Systems binary-only driver statically linked into their 
kernel in violation of the GPL. In that case, you're on your own.

Can you show me the contents of /proc/devices?
