Topic: Debugging the kernel MTD subsystem

Hi everybody,

as already indicated here, I've had some problems getting kamikaze to run on the Asus WL-HDD.

Here's a short summary of what I know so far:

- the device reboots continuously with kernel 2.6
- the reboots are caused by the MTD subsystem
- the call stack leading to the reboot is basically

    cfi_send_gen_cmd(0xF0, 0, base, map, cfi, cfi->device_type, NULL); (chips/cfi_probe.c, line 125)
    -> reboot

Unfortunately, I don't know much about CFI or the BCM47xx memory map, so I'd appreciate any hints..

Yours, Florian
