I probably should use cramfs, but I still have to put the bootloader in a
separate partition.

Thanks for your help, just one last straw (-:

Is it possible to make the block device use an offset while the character device
doesn't (using an ioctl, or something, on the character device before mounting
the block device) without modifying mtd? Then I could "hide" the bootloader from
the fs in the same partition and still be able to erase and write a new
bootloader and fs using the character device.
