No, I don't. I suspect it's a race allowing the GC to run before the file 
has been removed from the tree. I'm going to try the sledgehammer approach 
- a single semaphore round all JFFS operations in inode-v2x.c, and see if 
that fixes it. 

That's not a viable long-term solution though, obviously.
