Freeing unlinked inodes in JFFS2

[admins note: please dont send HTML mails to this list]

Hi all,

It seems like JFFS2 doesn't free inode_cache & raws for inodes having nlink
== 0, while mounting. Although it marks all raw nodes belonging to that
inode as obsolete.
I am not able to figure out the reason behind keeping these inodes in
inocache_list / in core all the time. These may be deleted files. They need
not be in inocache_list.

If anyone has any idea about why JFFS2 is doing so pls let me know.

Thanks & Regds.
