Does anybody know if this flash is supported by linux ? If so what kernel
and mtd code should I use ?

For MPC8xx.

I'm using kernel 2.4.3-pre4 and it fails when I try to load the physmap

Here is what I did and the error I got:

sh-2.03# modprobe -a mtdchar mtdblock cfi_cmdset_0001  map_rom cfi_probe
sh-2.03# lsmod

Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Any help would be appreciated.
