Re: Unknown INCOMPAT nodetype C002 at 0196f9e0
I'm able to reproduce this, but it takes some time (its on a 50MB
partition.) I'll try on a smaller one to reduce the amount of data
to sort throught.
I also tried the jffs2_2.4_branch and was unable to reproduce the
problem. (Not that it doesn't exist.)

jffs2_get_inode_nodes() is called only from jffs2_do_read_inode(). The
garbage-collection code would have to call iget() for the inode in
question, and iget() wouldn't return until read_inode() had finished.
So there's no need for the init_MUTEX(&f-sem) at the beginning of
jffs2_do_read_inode() to be init_MUTEX_LOCKED.

No, the intent was that if we know the node is obsolete (because the low
bit of flash_offset is set) then we don't bother to read it from the flash
And if it isn't marked obsolete in our own in-memory representation and we
went ahead with reading it from the flash, I'm somewhat concerned by the
fact that the node on the _flash_ says it's obsolete.
Can you take a snapshot of the offending filesystem, then do a complete
debug run, logging all the KERN_DEBUG messages and mail it all to me?
