jffs on non-MTD device?

I'm trying to run jffs on my ATA-flash disk (running ext2 could kill
some flash cells too soon, right?) but it refuses:

        if (MAJOR(dev) != MTD_BLOCK_MAJOR) {
                printk(KERN_WARNING "JFFS: Trying to mount a "
                       "non-mtd device.\n");
                return 0;

What are reasons for this check?
