Ok, YAFFS site just added a link to my patch, http://www.aleph1.co.uk/yaffs/. I didn't announce it before, 'cause I'm not satisfied with it yet. Now it's there to save anyone else from writing the same thing. I hope I will get time to work on it later.

I don't have enough time to improve my oom killer patch. I'm busy with my realty business, which will bring me more money than years hard working as an employee. Probably I'll never seriously work back in software except work on the linux kernel. Hackers, if you think you are not being well rewarded, consider resigning from your software job!
