When GTA02 started we wanted to use YAFFS2 for it. It looks plans changed 
without much of a discussion though. Since we only have 256MB on GTA02 (as 
opposed to the 512MB that were originally planned), it looks like we're at 
the MAX that jffs2 can deal with, so I'm ok with skipping yaffs2 for this
