    You're right. Look at:
    commit a2d2b5cb8e5d8787f009eeb3bbca52687bd42a77
    [ http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/7/13/166 ]

    You could export ROOT_DEV to modules back again, or perhaps:
    http://www.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-mtd/2005-March/012290.html
    to get around the build error.

    [ It might've been unexported for good reasons, of course, see:
