Got time to work on it tonight. I have all the pieces ready, but I need to
start over because the boot loaders won't support JFFS2 (yet..). So the
boot process needs to first start a kernel either from initrd or from an
ext2fs partition (read-only), which in turn will be able to access (and
boot) the actual system. So more or less I think I'll need:

  a /boot partition (ext2fs), containing the kernel (RO)
  a /     partition (jffs2), containing the system (RW)

Hopefully I'll get some time to work on it tomorrow night and have
something ready for Thursday.
