   Wikipedia claims that CF cards do internal wear leveling, which 
matches my memory.

   There are a couple of flash-storage-oriented filesystems available 
for Linux.  JFFS2 is the only one I'm familiar with, and it does 
primitive write-cycle leveling.  If I remember right, it does this 
mostly by writing out dirty pages to a new block rather than updating 
the existing block.
