I hit this today. The error I saw was:

[    4.975868] jffs2: error: (77) jffs2_build_inode_fragtree: Add node
to tree failed -22
[    4.983923] jffs2: error: (77) jffs2_do_read_inode_internal: Failed
to build final fragtree for inode #5377: error -22
[    4.994709] jffs2: Returned error for crccheck of ino #5377. Expect
badness...

Reverting the f2538f999345 commit fixed things.

Is the revert queued for stable?

Cheers,

Joel
