Kernel in JFFS. Possible?




Hi!

Do you think it would be possible to have the linux kernel as a
file in a JFFS partition and load it with a "lilo"-look-alike loader?
Is JFFS partitions defragmented? 

Example of use: when you want to upgrade the kernel, you remove the old 
kernel file and download the new one and save it as a file and then run
something like lilo which tells the boot loader where the kernel image
starts.
Then you would save some space(no padding lost) and it would be easier
to
upgrade the system.

 Jonas
