Unfortunatelly lack of support for Flash Translation Layer in NetBSD  
is the only reason I (and probably others) use Linux on embedded ARM,  
MIPS and PPC boards
instead of NetBSD ...
Being able to have a RW file system on NANDs is a huge selling point  
of Linux.
If someone is capable and willing to work on this I'd be glad to  
donate an XScale SoC for testing.
