this is the comment explaining jffs2 garbage collect:

# Enable background garbage collection thread, for making
# free space ahead of time. Leave this off till it's been
# implemented. And don't implement it till icache locking has
# been made thread-safe.

There is garbage collect code in ecos, so I suppost it is implemented.
And on my ARM7TDMI cpu, I don't have any cache, or is "icache" meaning 
something like "i-node cache" ?

So my question is, can I safely use the garbage collect thread?

Kind regards,
