Nonexisting flash...

My modified kernel supports 4 flash banks (64MB total)... When I place 
it on a card with 3 flash banks, the /dev/mtd/3 seems to just point to 
/dev/mtd/0... (I see all the things in /dev/mtd/0 when I moutn 
/dev/mtdblock/3... but I can't modify anything)

Am I correct that theoretically the mtd driver should not even load 
/dev/mtd/3 @ the beginning? (During do_map_probe in maps/physmap.c) If I 
am, then I can assume it's some hardware mapping problem.
