I was afraid of that, but we need the 2.0 kernel (at least for now).

We are using using JFFS with MTD and the uClinux 2.0.38 kernel. I have
some concerns re. JFFS and powercycling and as I understand the JFFS2 is
more robust. Another option would be to make JFFS more robust but I
assume that that might be an even bigger challenge.
