Actually, if you don't have the MTD stuff working, I suggest going to the 2.4.x
version where
modules work, get your MTD drivers going for the (flash) chip you are using, setup
the partitions are you want
and then migrate to the 2.2.x version if you really have to.

Trying to get MTD working w/o modules will be a royal pain and I could not
get MTD to work as modules under the 2.2.x kernels. If you do manage, pl
drop me a line with details and I'll update my howto.

Any particular reason?

The biggest hurdle will be the patch. Actually, just skip the patch and go the
utils/patchin.sh route. You will still have to manually edit the fs/Makefile file
to include support for JFFS/JFFS2.

Best of Luck.
