"Good morning Dave" ;-)

Did you already notice this?

JFFS is the Journaling Flash File System developed by Axis
Communications in Sweden, aimed at
providing a crash/powerdown-safe filesystem for disk-less embedded
devices. It is released under the
GPL, and the current version works for the Linux 2.0 kernel series and
industry-standard flash-memories (aka NOR-flashes). 

so, no patents apply!

on their todo-list:

-Standardizing the interface between JFFS and the flash-driver (see ). 
-Support for NAND-flashes (block-mapped flashes). 

Best regards, Karl Pitrich.
