   The on-medium format is very simple. The actual layout of the
   existing node types is detailed in full in include/linux/jffs2.h.
   In conjunction with the theory of operation described in the paper,
   these should be perfectly sufficient.

Perhaps he can't read that header file without "contaminating" his
