I have also been doing something similar to this - though I put the bad
block handling into Squashfs (another RO compressed filesystem). It
therefore seems as if all the possible approaches have been tried:
putting the bad block code in the NAND layer; implementing a new RO
block-driver; and putting the bad block code in the RO filesystem! It
definately seems as if there is a requirement for this in the main source.
Pantelis have you looked at Squashfs? This filesystem gives much better
compression than CRAMFS.
