Unfortunately time constraints for the project dont allow me to hack jffs now.

I'd prefer to have one r/o partition with cramfs (mounted on /usr) to be able 
to upload the whole filesystem at once even on on the running box. 
Compressed jffs case also would be a bit more difficult to update live.
Even if i had JFFS working, more viable option would be to use partitioned mtd
a'la pnc2000.c.

Not having ext3 for 2.4 leaves me with the option of either using reiserfs
or ext2/minix and living with fsck.
