    Since when roughly? 2.6.20ish? Before?

    Side note: you don't need mtdblock:
    # cp jffs2-empty.img /tmp/foo
    # losetup /dev/loop0 /tmp/foo
    # modprobe block2mtd block2mtd=/dev/loop0,128ki
    # mount -t jffs2 mtd0 /n/lower/b0

    It doesn't really hurt, 'tis just superfluous.

    Could be my problem. I'll see if I can reproduce it. Can you send me
    your .config or a link to it?
