Subject[PATCH] UBIFS: reserve more space for index
Date
From: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>

At the moment UBIFS reserves twice old index size space for the
index. But this is not enough in some cases, because if the indexing
node are very fragmented and there are many small gaps, while the
dirty index has big znodes - in-the-gaps method would fail.

Thus, reserve trise as more, in which case we are guaranteed that
we can commit in any case.
