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.
