Is the mtd read only block device broken in general or is it only for
mips that it
doesn't work?

Is it sheduled for removal / fixing or is it just forgotten because
everyone in the know uses the read / write driver which works.

The warning in the config option help for the read only driver seems to
that it is much more reliable to use it than the caching R/W driver,
hence the
fact that I bothered looking at it at all, perhaps this recommendation
should at
least be changed.
