Thanks for reporting this problem with the YAFFS2 code in our kernel.
Actually we merged that for a customer project some time ago without
provisions for maintaining the code in our repo.

I will see if updating YAFFS2 is easy, but if it ain't straightforward,
then I fear we have to remove it unless someone really needs (meaning
sponsors the time needed) the support done from us.


Perfection (in design) is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
