What happens when you have multiple partitions with one of them a
mtd raw partition and you accidentally mount the raw partition?
Erase the raw partition and format for jffs, destroying all data
in the raw partition?
When mounting a partition with jffs, if the partition isn't
completely erased or the partition isn't formatted for jffs,
fail the mount. Isn't this what happens when you mount a
drive formatted as type 'a' as type 'b'? Doesn't the
mount fail with a "wrong fs type"?
