Nope.  mphysmap (the old version from several years ago) created its
own proc file.  That one, in combination with /proc/mtd would contain
the necessary information.

New mphysmap is missing the proc file.  And the person that requested
the driver has been silent for a while, so I have no idea if it even
works.  Lack of hardware.


When in doubt, use brute force.
