hmmm ... I just tried creating the jffs2, it's 164 MB, about double the
size of any other rootfs (I already removed the kernel uimage then).
I'm trying it now, but it will take so much longer to transfer that
amount of data ...
Btw: does anybody have any idea how to get gstreamer to work with a
fso-based rootfs? That might reduce the size of the image *a lot* ...
and maybe solve the sound recording issue and such ...
