As always, bugging the company to finally upgrade to a recent kernel
is a good thing, although unrealistic. :-)

Most of the mtd code in cvs should be running on any kernel from 2.2.0
up to 2.5.current. David has done an excellent job there. So you
should take a peek into cvs, whenever you have a problem.

Apart from that, try to cut down on the number of #ifdefs, consider
sending a patch to David and good luck!
