The Millennium Plus is a little more bizarre than the other DiskOnChip
devices which we support; it'll take a little more to massage it into
the generic NAND framework, although Thomas seems to think it won't be

Unfortunately, although I am able to give limited access to DiskOnChip
2000 and Millennium documentation, I can't do the same for the
Millennium Plus. So you have to sort of pick it up from the existing
code in drivers/doc2001plus.c. 

Can you join us on IRC? channel #mtd

I suspect there isn't enough shared code to make it worth adding
Millennium Plus support to diskonchip.c. You'd probably do better to
create a new driver in drivers/nand for the Millennium Plus. You can
still base it on diskonchip.c of course.

If all you need to do is make INFTL work though, I suspect the
devices/doc2001plus driver ought to be sufficient for now. Your problem
wasn't actually with the low-level hardware driver; it was with the
INFTL formatting wasn't it?
