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.

FWIW, I have a skeleton MI nand/nor block flash layer with a "ram NOR flash memory device" driver that works great for testing. Adding NAND support to the 'ramfmd' driver shouldn't be that big of a deal.

If anyone's interested, contact me off list.
