Subject[ 070/108] UBI: fix eraseblock picking criteria
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com>

commit 7eb3aa65853e1b223bfc786b023b702018cb76c0 upstream.

The 'find_wl_entry()' function expects the maximum difference as the second
argument, not the maximum absolute value. So the "unknown" eraseblock picking
was incorrect, as Shmulik Ladkani spotted. This patch fixes the issue.
