Nothing is _meant_ to be exploited either. Someone could
create a cdrom with jffs2 (linux don't demand that cd's use iso9660)
with an intent to make trouble. crc's and such would match the
bad compressed stuff. Nothing unusual seems to happen, but
using the cd installs a back door as the fs uncompresses stuff.
