Nope. Just three files: one is 200 MBytes, two others are small. 

# time mount /mnt/flash/

real    1m33.528s
user    0m0.010s
sys     1m33.421s
# time ls /mnt/flash/
blockno1  junk      test1

real    20m54.573s
user    0m0.010s
sys     9m32.519s

This is not usable for embedded application. Have I run into a bug or that
is just how things are with jffs2 on big NANDs? Is that a problem with
a 200 MByte file?
