[uClinux-dev] MTD w/uClinux: Kernel hangs when trying to probe AM29LV160DB flash device

Hi,
    I am trying to get an AM29LV160DB flash device to work with the MTD
drivers under uClinux.  The device is connected in a 16-bit bus
fashion to a Motorola MC68VZ328.

The AM29LV160DB is supported by mtd/chips/jedec_probe.c

In my map file I have:
mymtd = do_map_probe("jedec_probe", &em1vz328_map);

The do_map_probe function calls get_mtd_chip_driver in mtd/mtd/chipreg.c
and that is where things seem to hang.  The get_mtd_chip_driver function
never returns and hangs the kernel.

Here is a snippet of the boot messages:
---------------------------------------------------------
.
.
EMDG em1-vz328 mapping:size 200000 at 2000000
EMDG: MTD Debug: Calling the do_map_probe function...
EMDG: MTD Debug: Calling get_mtd_chip_driver function...

---------------------------------------------------------

I looked through the archives and I noticed someone else had a similar
problem with this flash device under uClinux, but I could not find what
the solution was.

If anyone has any ideas I would be grateful.

Thanks,
David
