Yes, the chips are already supported in the current MTD code. 
But the MTD code does not support ancient kernels out of the box. Use a recent

Steve Ballmer quotes the statistic that IT pros spend 70 percent of their 
time managing existing systems. That couldn’t have anything to do with 
the fact that 99 percent of these systems run Windows, could it?
