Well, as two other guys also I experience Problems getting XIP
functional on 2.6.13.
In order to debug this I set up a nfs root to play from there.

The funny thing I relize now, is the following:

With jffs2 build into the kernel image the system freezes reproducable
when touching a file.

When build and load as a module I can do anything with the mounted
jffs2 partition, everything works fine.

Now I am puzzled. The not being a module or being a module is the only
difference and I testet both situations a dozen of times.
Another sidenote: I once had an XIP Kernel today running, root over
nfs and used /dev/mtdblock4 as a swap device with no problems. How
comes that :) ?
