I cannot give you any date yet, but I'm currently working on it.

With the MCM and the current release you should be able to use any 2MB
chip that is recognized by the driver
(os/linux/drivers/mtd/chips/amd_flash.c) and if it isn't in the table
in the driver you can easily add it after a quick glance at the
datasheet of the particular chip.

The only thing I can think of is that you need to configure the kernel
to use SDRAM instead of DRAM.
