Some more information:
The problem arose after creating a directory in my JFFS2 NAND fs, and
creating some 1000 (small) files in it. After rebooting I removed the
entire directory, and at the next reboot I got the error.
I'm running a 2.4.20 kernel but with mtd updated.
I didn't do the mtd update myself - this was handled by my board/linux
vendor, but scanning the mtd-directory structure I found that the newest
file in the structure seems to be "drivers/mtd/nand/s3c2410.c" from
$Id: s3c2410.c,v 1.5 2004/10/12 10:10:15 bjd Exp $
The remainder of the files are dated somewhat similar...
Maybe this can clarify some things?
