After some testing today i think its *not* ready for public consumption. I
managed to break one test where i truncated a file giving very strange
results, and al viros hashlist cleanup (which just replaced a home-grown
list with a list_head) made jffs freeze X for me (but it worked in the
console), which is something that simple patch shouldn't be able to do.
I've reverted that, but I want to look closer at it (no time today

But the filesystem does seem to work passably without you having to
implement half of VFS to test it, so I'd definitely would be interested in
a few people on the mtd-list testing it out.

Also, is anyone aware of a filesystem stress-test program i could try?
