In the 2.3.* tree, in drivers/block/ide.c, the drive_is_flashcard()
function looks like:

 if (drive->removable && id != NULL) {
  if (id->config == 0x848a) return 1;

so you can try adding that check to the 2.2.* kernel.  You can also
prevent the lockup (but not the delay before the drive is usable) by
editing drivers/block/ide-probe.c and changing delay_50ms() to look

 static void delay_50ms (void)
  current->state = TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE;
