jffs2 root partition


is it possible to mount the jffs2 partition as the root partition, 
skipping the cramfs partition completely? I have tried to set kernel 
parameter root=/dev/mtdblock2 and modified the jffs2 image creation in 
the makefile, and it appears to mount just fine, but when it is about to 
run ./linuxrc, it complains that it can't open the console. /dev/console 
is symlinked to /dev/ttyS2. As far as I can see, all devices exists in 
the image, but I haven't actually mounted it to check.

We want to be able to upgrade all installed software with a package 
manager without having to reflash.
