is it possible to have 2 file systems of the same type (eg. cramfs) and
mount it?

for eg. /dev/mtdblock/2 as root file system and /dev/mtdblock/3 as
secondary file system which has some binaries alone. My kernel
version is 2.4.5-pre1 (for IDT mips) and it seems that the kernel
is crashing at semaphore.c (line 235) when i try to load my driver.
