JFFS on RPX-CLLF board

If you are using an Embedded Planet RPX-CLLF board and want to install
JFFS, here is a source file that I have modify to define a JFFS/MTD

Place this file in:  /opt/.. <linux>../drivers/mtd

This was tested with linux kernel 2.4.4 (PPC).

Hope this can help other saving some time...
If you find any bugs, let me know. I'm not a specialist linux programmer!
