No, I meant that the kernel loader is a bit like lilo: it reads the compressed
kernel off the filesystem (when writing the kernel to disk, you have to write
the sectors sequence somewhere on the bootblock).
I think the same kind of mechanism is doable with jffs, we just have to have a
way to know where are the sectors of a file.
