You can't do it like that - you'll get crap on the filesystem sometimes,
during normal operation. We have logic in there to abort the mount at the
end, if no valid nodes were found, but other data were. Is that failing or
are you using an obsolete version?
Line 147 of scan.c should read:
printk(KERN_NOTICE "Cowardly refusing to erase blocks on filesystem with no valid JFFS2 nodes\n");
Does it? Why doesn't it get triggered?
