AFAIK no, there's no port of YAFFS or JFFS/JFFS2 for NetBSD

AFAIK Wasabi Systems people ( have some NAND (or 
NOR ? I don't remember..) Flash implementation plus journaled FS for NetBSD 
but it isn't available for public domain. You probably should ask them 
directly :)

Take a look at Linux MTD project at They 
have done a lot of work and, theoretically, it can be ported/rewritten for 
NetBSD. Though from my personal exp this 1) needs a lot of work 2) Linux MTD 
is poorly documented.
