BF537 uClinux - jffs2: Flash size not aligned to erasesize

Hi, I have a custom BF537 board. Upon booting uclinux from flash I get the following: 

 

This is a snippet from the boot message:

Creating 4 MTD partitions on "Boot Flash":
0x00000000-0x00020000 : "bootloader, 128k"
mtd: partition "bootloader, 128k" doesn't end on an erase block -- force read-only

......

JFFS2 flash size adjusted to 4190208KiB
JFFS2 write-buffering enabled buffer (528) erasesize (8448)

 

Running cat /proc/mtd

root:/> cat /proc/mtd
dev:        size      erasesize   name

mtd4: 003d8000 00000210 "linux, 4M"
mtd5: 00400000 00000210 "JFFS2 Application Partition"

 

The erasesize for mtd1, mtd2, mtd3, mtd4 and mtd5 should be 00000200 as per my already working board. How do I go about changing this?

 

Here is the entire boot message:
