There's a public health warning attached to this code ..

I've not cleaned it up and I've not added any comments ..


fyi; I don't use mkfs.jffs2 .. I flash_eraseall the device then work
from there with "tar".. there seems to be no benefit [for me] to using
mkfs and it seems a little more reliant on the device size than the
erase program.
