I had a closer look at the jffs2 changes and I think they are only used
by the mtd-utils in tools/ and we only added the to packages to keep
them in sync. The jffs2 tools are not packaged into the package.
I did this change becasue I saw some compile warnings when looking at
the patches which bring it to version 2.0.1.

My patch to 130-lzma_jffs2.patch is more or less unrelated to the to the
bump to the version 2.0.1, I would support if also the version in tools
gets to this new version.

Probably the patches should be synced between the two mtd-utils versions.
