[uClinux-dev] user applications & kernel versions...

I have been noticing that some of the applications in the user folders are
pretty far out of date form the mainline projects, causing some issues when
using the latest kernels.
I can update this & send a patch, but it might cause problems for those
using older kernels...
some issues I have encountered so far:
- mount is the wrong version for the 2.6 kernel
- mkfs.jffs2 is _very_ old (1.2 is in uclinux-dist), but the latest
(1.45) is noted not to work with the 2.4 kernel. We are running into issues
with the 2.6.12 kernel with the 1.2 mkfs.jffs2 application.
I can split them up, and compile the new apps when the new kernel is
selected, but that seems a little crazy. (cvs is big enough isn't it? - we
should try not put a bunch of user/2.4.x user/2.6.x code in?)
