Intel StrataFlash support

I'm wondering what support exists in JFFS2 and/or MTD for Intel
StrataFlash. This type of flash includes a RAM bit for each flash bit in
the device, providing flash reads at RAM speeds.

This technology also re-raises the XIP issue. Parts of this flash should be
treated as uncompressed ROM for XIP, but *which* parts would need to shift
over time in order to do wear-leveling over the whole device.

Intel StrataFlash is likely to become a common component in embedded
systems, as it is part of the XScale PXA26x CPUs (and they have recently
discontinued the PXA250, which lacked it).
