Your code looks similar to mine in many respects, but is more likely to be
usable with the PCMCIA code. David Hinds has confirmed that he's willing to
allow memory handling stuff to be removed from the PCMCIA suite and placed into
the kernel, as long as the required functionality is present.
At first sight, it seems that the only thing my version has that isn't present
in your code is the 'physmem' device, so I'll port that to your system, and
then we can ditch my code, and concentrate on making your Common Flash
Interface work happily with the PCMCIA code, before submitting an initial
version to Linus for his newly-released 2.3 series.
Is it OK if I put your diff up for FTP next to my stuff, and use it as the
basis for the CVS repository that I was intending to set up?
