Flash is NOR Intel E28F128J3A150.

I'm booting with NFS enabled kernel and rootfs over NFS, then erasing mtd 
partition that holds rootfs and then copying rootfs.jffs2 to mtd partition like 

$ flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2
$ cp /tmp/rootfs.jffs2 /dev/mtd2

I can mount jffs2 partition afterwards with:
$ mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt/jffs2
$ ls /mnt/jffs2/
bin      etc      linuxrc  proc     staging  usr
dev      lib      mnt      sbin     tmp      var

..because under Linux "if something is possible in principle,
then it is already implemented or somebody is working on it".
