> Does JFF2 require a scan of all devices at the time of mounting ?
I believe so, this is the document linked from the main JFFS2 site:
It talks about scanning and CRC checking each node when a device is
mounted. I don' think this would be a big issue for us.
> Are you using NAND or NOR devices?
NAND, I just noticed that the ecos version of JFFS2 does not have NAND
support because it relies on the linux MTD. This could be a big
roadblock as the MTD interface looks like it includes a fairly
significant number of functions.

Thanks, It seems like either would work. I think with JFFS2 we would
end up with a more efficient FS for flash, however, it seems that
between the port to RTEMS and the need of an MTD-like interface layer
it might be more time that I can convince my boss to let me spend on
it. I'm hoping Jay will have some input that will push me in either
