Dear all
    I am using kernel 2.6.10 with patched cvs mtd and my flash mapping 
driver. I also add debug msg on mount_block_root. The return value is 
ENXIO. I am really get mess , because the cfi proded the flash 
successfully, but final result is "no such a device". Does anyone have 
ideas on this?

NOR flash driver (size->0x800000 mem->0x10000000)
NOR Flash 1: Found 1 x8 devices at 0x0 in 8-bit bank
 Amd/Fujitsu Extended Query Table at 0x0040
NOR Flash 1: CFI does not contain boot bank location. Assuming top.
number of CFI chips: 1
cfi_cmdset_0002: Disabling erase-suspend-program due to code brokenness.
