I don't mean vanilla linux i mean the Linux kernel (which is what Linux is) the Android kernel is simply linux with some mobile specific changes, those changes where merged into the main branch of the kernel all the mapping of buttons and so on is done in kernel land/ user land so the Android source really wouldn't provide much help. There are custom divers and so on in various kernel sources (like the Samsung Galaxy S source for example).
Also yes all ROMs for the Galaxy S use it but the stock Galaxy S uses RFS and it runs grand. i have both a Galaxy S running Cyanogenmod 7 and one running stock, the difference is noticeable but stock isn't unusable.
