MontaVista reportedly has this as part of their at-cost HHL kit. However,
I am not aware of any monetarily-free bundles of this cross-compiled for
various architectures.

It's been on my to-do list to work on this; however, my experience thus
far is that this is not entirely straightforward to cross-compile based on
what's in the package at present.

I'm trying to do some PCMCIA CompactFlash vs. discrete flash + JFFS2
benchmarking, so I'll let you know if I get anywhere with it.
