DiskOnChip & JFFS1/2

Im trying to setup a JFFS1/2 filesytem on the 48MB DiskOnChip.  Seems
Ive run into a few problems that I cant find  answers to.

1).  If I download the the latest cvs source of the mtd and patch it in
with the 2.4.19 kernel the jffs2 support will not compile.  background.c
tells me that recalc_sigpending passed 1 argument but takes 0.  JFFS2
support compiles fine from the unpatched source.

2).  Using the support from the 2.4.19 kernel I got the kernel to
reconize the diskonchip but I get the following error when trying to
create a JFFS2 filesystem:
ECC needs a full sector write ( addr 400 size 4c ).
What the heck does that mean?  I cant find much expect a message post
saying disk on chip does not support jffs filesystems.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
