Subject[PATCH] rbtree: fix jffs2 build issue due to renamed __rb_parent_color field
When renaming rb_parent_color into __rb_parent_color to highlight the
fact that people aren't expected to directly manipulate this, I broke
the jffs2 build which was doing such direct manipulation in
fs/jffs2/readinode.c . Fix this and add a comment explaining why
this direct use is safe here.
