I have simular result. Used df to see the size and available space on all partitions.
- It looks like the /dev/mtdblock3 is in use by jffs2 blocks.
dmesg shows some prioritised blocks when mounting as yaffs2. So better to mount as jffs2 I think.
So far this kernel 22.214.171.124 and the updated sources are very usable now. ;-)
