[ You really should switch to a decent mailer that e.g. breaks lines
before column 136. ;) ]
For 'normal' filesystems, this bug is solved in __sync_single_inode by
writing out pages first and the inode later. Works well enough for
ext at least.
So I agree, JffS2 should behave at least as well.
Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability.
