Can a JFFS file system be placed in the middle
area of flash? (We will be using the beginning and
end areas for other things).

What I'm concerned about is that many flash
chips have a group of 8 small blocks at the
beginning of the flash space in the chip.
If a JFFS is placed in the middle, is there
a danger that the software will still expect
those small blocks?
