i can suggest creating custom rootfs. it's quite simple - 
# tar -cp bin boot dev etc home lib root sbin usr var > /media/mmc1/backup.tar

after which you only inpack it at your linux box, add: /media/mmc1, /mnt/initfs, /sys, /tmp, /proc
and pack and use  tar2jffs2.sh to make jffs2 filesystem. then you only need to flash it:

flasher-2.0 -r <image> -R -f

and it's done. if you wish, i can send you mine flash image. it's quite pretty 
enchanced and workes/lookes great. i'll just reset passwords and go
email me if you wish, i have external IP and webserver, i'll just put it into pub dir.
