That's weird. Can you tell me on which platform you're testing?
lsxxx or vf610? Can you dump the NOR after the erase to make sure the memory is actually erased (filled with 0xff)?

I am working on lsxxx platform. With further debugging, I found that my erase operation for second flash device is not working properly.
Need to have debugging for this in Frieder Patch.

When I have created multiple partition for First flash device, then JFFS2 mounting and booting of Linux kernel from rootfstype=jffs2 is successful.
root@ls1012ardb:~# cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00500000 00040000 "rcw"
mtd1: 00a00000 00040000 "test"
mtd2: 02e00000 00040000 "rootfs"
mtd3: 04000000 00040000 "20c0000.quadspi-1"
In above list, for MTD2 partition, able to perform JFFS2 mounting.

Below is logs of erase for both flashes:
