NAND Flash Framework Introduction, experimental

Own try…

# file /tmp/nandimg_.JeCb7JOv/common.fs
/tmp/nandimg_.JeCb7JOv/common.fs: UBIfs image, sequence number 8, length 4096, CRC 0x151054e7

# mount -t ubifs /tmp/nandimg_.JeCb7JOv/common.fs /mnt/common
mount: unknown filesystem type 'ubifs'

Should work, but…

Where are the sources for mtd/nand/nandsim kernel module?
