I don't think JFFS is ready to be included in the kernel. It hasn't
been tested a lot (the 2.2 and 2.4 ports) and I'm sure we'll find many
bugs (the invalidate_inode_pages bug is a good example of a huge bug
that we almost missed). Just today, I untarred the source code of a
program on a JFFS partition, tried to compile it and got a read error
I'm not sure if Linus plans on releasing 2.4 soon but I wouldn't want
JFFS to be released in the kernel is it's full of bugs.
