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

AFAIK Wasabi Systems people (http://www.wasabisystems.com) 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
Take a look at Linux MTD project at http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org. 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.
