I'm been thinking about this, and about the problems with garbage collection
taking to long. What about shifting all node writes into a kernel thread,
which also does the GC?

The jffs_file_write() function then only needs to queue the node(s) to be 
written, and can return immediately. Obviously we have to implement a way 
of flushing a particular file, but that shouldn't be too difficult.
