Subject[07/12] JFFS2: Fix free space leak with in-band cleanmarkers
2.6.24-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org>

We were accounting for the cleanmarker by calling jffs2_link_node_ref()
(without locking!), which adjusted both superblock and per-eraseblock
accounting, subtracting the size of the cleanmarker from {jeb,c}->free_size
and adding it to {jeb,c}->used_size.
But only _then_ were we adding the size of the newly-erased block back
to the superblock counts, and we were adding each of jeb->{free,used}_size
to the corresponding superblock counts. Thus, the size of the cleanmarker
was effectively subtracted from the superblock's free_size _twice_.
Fix this, by always adding a full eraseblock size to c->free_size when
we've erased a block. And call jffs2_link_node_ref() under the proper
lock, while we're at it.

Thanks to Alexander Yurchenko and/or Damir Shayhutdinov for (almost)
pinpointing the problem.
