there is an issue with jffs2 though.. it doesn't really scale with size. Nowadays 8 Gb of flash is not uncommon, but jffs2 just is impractical to use there. In addition, jffs2 does waste quite some space that it needs for the garbage collector to do it's work...
(and technically, jffs2 is log structured with a few twists, it's not strictly log structured, but chunked into log pieces)
