I have a USB card reader, an Olympus MAUSB-10. It provides direct flash access to SmartMedia or xD cards, using the Linux
alauda driver. This is different from a typical card reader which just exposes it as a standard USB mass storage device.
There's drivers in the Linux kernel that will do the FTL thing and expose this as a standard block device, but I want direct flash access. I was wondering if it's possible to use the various utilities of
mtd-tools to read, write, and erase directly to it.
So the device is recognized by
lsusb, and drivers
nand_ecc are loaded. But
cat /proc/mtd isn't revealing another MTD device available, and I don't see any additional devices in
/dev. How do I create a new mtd device and connect it to the alauda driver?
