Jffs and MTD should be mostly working now. I need to upgrade my kernel
from 2.3.99-pre3 to one where try_inc_mod_count() is exported.
Undoubtedly some vfs changes since pre3 requires some minor
modifications, but it should basically work.

If you want to try it out without doing any changes, run 2.3.99-pre3, and
the lates MTD cvs tree with the following small (temporary) patch:
Index: include/linux/mtd/mtd.h

+static inline int try_inc_mod_count(struct module *mod)
+     __MOD_INC_USE_COUNT(mod);

Now I need to do more stress-testing and check all the corner cases. I
don't know if stuff is SMP safe, have to do more reading and thinking.
