I'd like to know more about those block layer emulations, indeed (both
the sunxi_nand and others like rk3066's "mtdblock"), to better to what
extent we can trust them when using a setup that causes many more writes
than that of a typical Android setup.

But, I can't imagine using jffs2 on a 8GB filesystem.  Ubifs might
handle it fine, tho.
