The problem is you can't just "port" the NAND chip driver from 2.6.10 to 
2.6.18 by just cut'n'paste.
The MTD subsystem has undergone a serious reorg in 2.6.18 so you first 
need to look at it, and at how other drivers have been changed in 
2.6.18, to be able to port the NAND driver in the right way.
