Partition badness

I tried to run 2.6.28-rc7 and got the following for every partition,
both nor and nand, after the first partition:

ffc00000.nor: Found 1 x16 devices at 0x0 in 16-bit bank
 Amd/Fujitsu Extended Query Table at 0x0040
ffc00000.nor: 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.
RedBoot partition parsing not available
Creating 4 MTD partitions on "ffc00000.nor":
0x00000000-0x00020000 : "splash"
0x00300000-0x00340000 : "fpga"

This is on a PIKA warp with a PPC processor. I haven't really digged
into it yet (I was actually looking for a usb problem) but I am hoping
somebody recognizes the problem.

Yes there is a large gap between the "splash" partition and the fpga
partition. The first partition is at the start of flash and the others
at the end.
