Kudos to Dan for all his efforts.

Please join this effort as it will provide all the benefits of the generic 
mtd/nand subsystem and help us avoid to have redundant and incompatible code. 
At least the prospect to run JFFS2 or YAFFS on DoC should convince you of the 
worthiness of this effort.

I'm positive that the Millenium+ efforts will show up with similar results 
soon. The general problems of DoC support seem to be solved so it should be a 
straight forward task despite of the device specific oddities to get it 
running soon.

Please note that we plan to obsolete the DoC drivers in drivers/mtd/devices in 
the long run and switch the DoC support completely over to mtd/nand. This 
will affect the (I)NFTL layers too, as they will benefit from the nand  
functionality too.

"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."
