creating jffs2 filesystem on ext3


As jffs2 is the only stable filesystem for Linux that is capable of r/w
compression, I wanted to test it a bit.

I have a 23 GB ext3 /mnt/test partition on which I would like to create 
a ~23 GB jffs2 image.

My / partiton is about 9 GB.

How can I create that big jffs2 image?

man doesn't say much (at least for me); it seems that it's only possible
to create images from an existing directory.

Does it mean I won't be able to create an empty 23 GB jffs2 image?

Or perhaps I didn't see some option?
