I don't know if you can put them in any other interface mode. JFFS can
work with block-devices like that, but not in the current version any
more. We're trying to add support for NAND-flashes though that do have a
block interface (albeit not IDE in particular) and in the same procudure
we could add support to this perhaps if it's useful (someone who actually
has compactflash stuff needs to do it though :)
