MTD newbie wants programming a 28F800 with a 2.2.18 kernel

I am completely new to MTD. My job is to program a 28F800 boot block flash
running a 2.2.18 kernel.
I am using  this patch mtd-patch-2.2.18-20001218-2230GMT. Since there is no
support for the 28F800 because it has CUI not CFI  I need to write the
driver for the CUI. I found the lart-driver (lart.c) in the 2.5.x sources
which can manage a 28F160 (which is compatible to 28F800).

Do you know of any implementation of the lart-driver on a 2.2.x kernel?
Since the mtd_info structure has changed extensively from the 2.2.18-patch
to 2.5.x there is a lot of work to-do.
