Physically mapped FLASH

Is there a reason why the physical-mapping setup (drivers/mtd/maps/physmap.c)
is coded to ONLY talk to CFI chips?  For example I have some 405gp things
that have AMD Flash chips that are physically mapped to the top of memory
and could be driven by the algorithms in drivers/mtd/chips/amd_flash.c.

I've patched it and it appears to work ok; is it a bad idea?  is it good idea?
Any interest in incorporating in?
