This question would probably be better answered by the folks that
support JFFS2 - try linux-mtd@lists.infradead.org

JFFS2 should work with most any type of FLASH device, but AFAIK there
are no drivers currently available for DiskOnModule for eCos (but you
should be able to write them).  As for persistence, JFFS2 stands for
"Journaling Flash File System v2", which means that data is kept in
a journaled fashion and should be safe to recover, even after a
power failure.

Again, discuss this with the MTD/JFFS2 folks for the best advice.
