Please keep the mailing list CC'd on all correspondence.  As you can
see, I've been busy for the past week and am sure there are others
listening that are more qualified to answer.  Anyway...

Looks like you now have char-based reads working, so I expect your
kernel is now properly configured.  The AMD chip you're using has been
around for a while, so it's unlikely a source-code problem.  

Have you tried mtd-utils?  If not, I recommend installing them on the
board.  The source as well as RPMs are available on-line at a number of
places.  Google will help you here.
