It's not that simple. jffs2 is layered on top of MTD rather than just
being a block device.

I'm sure you could write a driver which worked with a loopback, but
I'm pretty sure that functionality doesn't currently exist.

I'm also pretty sure that if you could do such a thing you would just
be creating a false sense of security. The weakest link would still be
the underlying FAT file system.
