I'm talking about pretty standard ix86 hardware which has embedded like
properties such as fanless and motorless use, hardware watchdog, flash
memory but only few of the typical limitations like restricted memory
(we are using 256 or 512 MB), slow CPU, few connectors.

So basically we do have pretty powerful hardware with huge storage and
memory and now need a FS which is fast and reliable even on flash
memory. JFFS2 is nice but way too slow once one has bigger sizes.
