    I wrote the SmartMedia FlashPath driver, and I can
    say that the SmartMedia is fine, but the FlashPath is a
    little silly. (And I sometimes feel very bad for what
    I was forced to write due to NDA and time constraints)..

    (See my post on C++ kernel modules....)
    (and evil sys_mount() syscall overloading...)
    (and evil /dev/fd0 driver overloading...)
    (basically this driver is an example of what NOT to
    allow in a mainline kernel... but had to be written
    that way to comply with marketing...)
