Hi Peter,

I figured out the issue already and sent you a patch that fixed it:

commit 5a352cdeba03856fa2d0cf12c707fd80704ebfdd

mtd-utils-1.1.0 had this in the file feature-removal-schedule.txt:

What:   mkfs.jffs.c
When:   Shortly after kernel 2.6.21 is released
Why:    Support for the JFFS filesystem is being removed from the kernel
Who:    Josh Boyer <jwboyer at gmail.com>

When the mtd-utils package got bumped to 1.2.0 that file was removed so
the utility was gone.

I didn't actually need the utility it was just selected in my .config.


PS, Sorry about forgetting to put a subject on this thread.
