The oops was caused by a RBB (real big bug) in jffs_mknod (from 2.2).  I
just fixed it.  As for the wrong major and minor numbers, I suspect
mkfs.jffs doesn't handle them properly (I didn't check so I might be
wrong) but I'll try to fix this later.

BTW, I had completly forgotten to test the device nodes.  Thanks for
reminding me!
