Hi All,

I back ported mtd snapshot 20050416 codes to 2.4.26 for AMD Au1200.
The NAND device could be identified and accessed via /dev/mtd/0 interface.
I even could mount /dev/mtdblock/0, copy file to it and umount it. But there is
so many warnings or ecc error messages!

So in order to properly use NAND Flash, how could I format and read/write
data to it? I want to put Linux root file system on the NAND. Is it a right choice?

Thanks in advance for you suggestions and help!
