Yup, do that and see, what all breaks. Then fix those parts and you
did it.
The best way would be to create a patch from 2.4.6 to 2.4.16 for the
jffs2 stuff exclusively, read it and see, what might/will break. You
might want to upgrade the mtd code as well, for obvious reasons.


The next best thing to having good ideas is recognizing 
good ideas from your users. Sometimes the latter is better.
