Subject[ 34/54] jffs2: Fix lock acquisition order bug in gc path
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Josh Cartwright <joshc@linux.com>

commit 226bb7df3d22bcf4a1c0fe8206c80cc427498eae upstream.

The locking policy is such that the erase_complete_block spinlock is
nested within the alloc_sem mutex. This fixes a case in which the
acquisition order was erroneously reversed. This issue was caught by
the following lockdep splat:

=======================================================
[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
3.0.5 #1
-------------------------------------------------------
jffs2_gcd_mtd6/299 is trying to acquire lock:
(&c->alloc_sem){+.+.+.}, at: [<c01f7714>] jffs2_garbage_collect_pass+0x314/0x890

but task is already holding lock:
(&(&c->erase_completion_lock)->rlock){+.+...}, at: [<c01f7708>] jffs2_garbage_collect_pass+0x308/0x890

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:

-> #1 (&(&c->erase_completion_lock)->rlock){+.+...}:
[<c008bec4>] validate_chain+0xe6c/0x10bc
