Eep. That was removed from CVS long ago, but was added back again. I've now 
removed it again.

For the MTD drivers, the code in 2.4.19-pre is probably the best option 
unless you need the new features I held back for 2.4.20-pre. For JFFS2, you 
should be using the code from the jffs2-2_4-branch in CVS. I _think_ that's 
all been sent to Marcelo for 2.4.19 though.
