RE: Inodes vs. rows



Yes and no.  Yes, you have a penalty until garbage collection time.
If the file contains multiple records, garbage collection will merge them
all together to a small number of 'raw_inodes', based on the chunk size.  

I can't answer to what happens in layers above jffs that does buffering.

Is there an efficiency penalty if a file's fixed record size is smaller
than an Inode?  IE: if the records are 30 bytes and inodes
are 60 bytes, is there wasted space?
