Argh!! I was looking for this before, and since I
couldn't find anything about it, I wrote the patch...

I understand, but in my case, MTD is not needed
anymore for JFFS2 to work (I have disabled MTD support
on my firewall).

although we could, this would need MTD support while
in my case it becomes like any standard FS.

ok, thanks.

don't worry about that, I wrote it myself from
scratch,
because I don't like other parsers which use strtok
or other things. I give it for free ; you can use it
where you want as long as you don't prevent me from
using it ;-)
