Hum, what's the official way to include the latest CVS into the kernel?
Kernel patches are out of date (I only found patches for 2.4.0-test kernels)
and patches/patchin.sh doesn't considers jffs2. I created the links for jffs2
myself but I still had to fiddle around with zlib and crc32 headers, apart
from the fact that changes of the configure options aren't reflected that way.
