It is too few information for me. Please use JFFS2 debug level 1, and
send me the full kernel log. If possible use the summary patch of today
(24th), I've added some additional debug message, which can be very
usefull to debug your problem.
Some other question/idea: did you try it without summary? Did it work
correctly? (Peter Grayson reported a problem using the current snapshot,
it also maybe related by that). You also may try compile 2.6.x without
preemtion and SMP. I would be good to know that it works or not, I may
be the difference between 2.4.x and 2.6.x.
