jffs2_get_inode_nodes(): Data CRC failed on NAND chip

I have had similar problems to this. As you reboot you must make sure that root is
remounted read only. If you don't a reboot can cause the JFFS2 garbage collector to
be stopped mid operation. JFFS2 is verbose in error reporting. I suspect that your
files are still ok. There was a bug in the JFFS2 layer which caused the garbage
collector not to flush it's write buffer on remount read only. This would not screw up
the filesystem but it would generate messages for uncleanly finished garbage
operations. I have discussed this recently and it should be available via CVS now.
I have had discussions about the empty flash messages too. It seems it is not a
problem. If the message concerns you move it to KERN_DEBUG
Hope this helps
