I'm not an expert on the workings of mtdutils, so I don't know
why your device does not have the necessary sysfs entries. Perhaps
weird hardware features or a strange, incorrect driver (I can't work
on your board specific driver for you). I suppose it's OK to ignore
this problem for the moment.

Honestly, that doesn't really help :) I guess the device is old
enough it does not have an extended ID. In that case, I will need
the part number to be able to diagnose for sure. Can you find the
physical chip on the board and give me whatever labeling is on it?
In place of that, though, you can just try this patch on 2.6.36-rc1.
I believe it should satisfy the intention of my previous (faulty)
commit while reverting the regression behavior. If this works OK, I
will submit it to be included in the mainline kernel.
Thanks for taking the time to debug this.
