The plan is to have a doc driver in drivers/mtd/nand which uses the generic 
nand code and overrides the doc specific functions. On top of this (I)NFTL 
can be used or JFFS2/YAFFS without the (I)NFTL layer.

Dan Brown is actually working on it.

No, this will be part of the doc driver in drivers/mtd/nand

"When customers are visiting, engineers are not allowed to wear ties. 
That way the customer can tell who is the engineer and who is the 
salesman (and therefore whom to believe.). Ties cut off blood flow 
to the brain, making it easier for the salesmen to do their jobs."
