the one from the unpatched 2.4.22 kernel. I actually
forgot to mention the following config flags that I
used on my most recent kernel:
I then ran:
modprobe -a doc2000 nftl mtdchar
modprobe -a docprobe
I'm actually now building another kernel with the
latest mtd patch, just to be sure.

Ok, I was being desperate, I meant to just use the one
from the kernel since the one from mtd is a lot
