Dunno what you can do about it, but the guy who owns the process for
generating the jffs2 image for Debian may get a hint from this to change
how he generates it.  jffs2 mount should be a few seconds not 120.

Particularly as I recall the parameters for generating GTA01 and GTA02
images differ due to NAND block differences.
