 Twice because the FTL may introduce a wear leveling for the NAND flash, and
 the Journaled file system does introduce a wear leveling by principle. So
 you could have two wear-leveling... of course it's useless but it could

 The problem I encountered with the TFTP is that as I do not use the TCP/IP
 stack from ecos I must add the networking package to enable the TFTP server,
 but a conflict appear telling me that CYGPCK_NET_STACK should be enabled...
 Idem for the ATHTTP server as I don't use the TCP/IP stack from Ecos...
 I don't know if I can use both of them with my specific TCP/IP Stack...
