This "ready timed out" is likely an Erase resume(not sure though) that times out and indicate that the flash is somewhat buggy.
What surprises  me is that it hung "touch" and lost some files in a directory, seems like error recovery
in jffs2 is somewhat lax, a tmo here should not hang/loose files I think.
