Good. I removed it, tried out, and committed it.
I don't understand *why* it causes instability, though.

BTW, Oleg has a coded a mtd driver backend to access the ROM already.
See in drivers/mtd/maps/sa1100-flash.c
Oleg: could you document that in the README ?

Yup. I have disabled it in CVS for quite some time.
Sorry for not having told you, Oleg -- I wanted to test it for sure, first.
Apparently, I still have to cat /proc/modules instead of lsmod,
but insmod works indeed.

PS: I also committed a patch to remove those annoying "tainted" message
when insmod'ing USB modules.
In any module you write, don't forget to insert such lines as:
MODULE_DESCRIPTION("SA1101 foo driver");
