[ECOS] JFFS2 eCos port updated.

The current JFFS2 code has been updated to work in eCos again, and the 
master CVS tree contains a script which can be used to make an EPK of it.

The core JFFS2 code is now almost clear of Linuxisms, which mean all the 
Linux-like code in the eCos parts are now almost entirely inexcusable.

While I'm happy to maintain the core parts and make sure they remain
portable enough to continue working in eCos, I'd quite like a volunteer to
maintain the eCos-specific bits of JFFS2 -- preferably starting with a 
rewrite :)

It'd also be nice to see RedBoot commands added for mounting, reading and 
possibly also writing to JFFS2 partitions -- other bootloaders have been 
able to boot Linux kernels from a JFFS2 partition for some time now, and 
it's a shame RedBoot can't do it when all the actual code to do the JFFS2 
parts is there already.

Any volunteers?
