After taking your advice,the JFFS2 complaint
disappeared.The command I tested is as follows,it
worked fine:

eraseall /dev/mtd3

mkfs.jffs2 -r /tmp/tmp -e 0x40000 -o /dev/mtd3 -b

Thanks for you all.

Next,I will take Wolfgang's advice on decreasing boot
time to create an ext2+mini_fo filesystem based on MTD
 to get a faster boot process.By now the boot time of
my target is 18-20

Best regards,
