Oops, I posted this on the uCLinux forum, my bad.

 

I read here: blackfin.uclinux.org/gf/project/uclinux-dist/tracker/ that Yaffs2 in u-boot is going to be replaced by UBI/UBIFS. Does this mean that yaffs2 is actually going to disappear from BFin u-boot? Or is it going to stay in, e.g. as legacy?

Given that the yaffs folks seem to have no desire to get into the mainline kernel - we have dropped yaffs from the kernel (it was taking too much effort to keep working). If it is not in the kernel -- do you really need it in U-Boot?

Well, I run a bare-metal application (eCos), and I ported yaffs there. I would like to share some file system between u-boot and my application, for starters to have a 'boot partition' that I can populate with various versions of my application, that are launched from u-boot.

 

Does this mean that I will have to port UBI/UBIFS too?

I'll let Mike answer - since he maintains U-Boot... (and would need to do the work).

that link is talking about dropping yaffs from Linux, not u-boot.  the support in Linux was added by us in our own tree which is a pretty big burden.  but this is not really the same with u-boot -- mainline has integrated support for yaffs2 (somewhat).  we wont be dropping anything mainline has added.

 

so i dont know what you're using in u-boot exactly in terms of yaffs, but if it's like common/cmd_yaffs2.c, that isnt going anywhere.
