I tend to agree with one condition: There needs to be a prospect of
improvement. My two preferred variants would be one person doing
everything or two people, one improving the code and the other testing
on hardware to detect and prevent regressions.

For a moment I was contemplating just taking the mtd driver and doing
the work myself. But two things stopped me short. For one, I didn't
find the referenced header anywhere. Secondly I lack any hardware to
test the result.

But more to the point, I cannot come to terms with Adrian. So either
one of us has to be replaced - and I cannot see a lot of volunteers - or
we are currently lacking the prospect of improvement. Hence my bad
feeling about this code.

Hopefully I just caught Adrian on the wrong foot.
