More flash for IBM 405GP Walnut?

Unlike with Spruce and other trees, IBM hosed the PPC 405GP Walnut board by
only giving it 512 Kbytes of Flash.
Does anyone know of a source for a PCI Bus target board that contains linear
flash?  (i.e. not a card that emulates an IDE/ATA disk drive)

If there are none, and I or my employer developed a flash memory card that
plugged into the Walnut's 200-pin proprietary expansion connector, J36, how
many of you would want any?  If interested, email me:
- qty desired
- preferred flash memory width (8/16/32 bits), depth, and sector size (256
  bytes SST or 64 Kbytes everyone else)
- price sensitivity (my goal would be to amortize development, not get rich)
