JFFS2 locking regression fix.
Commit a491486a2087ac3dfc00efb4f838c8d684afaf54 introduced a locking problem in JFFS2 -- we up() the alloc_sem when we weren't previously holding it. This leads to all kinds of fun behaviour later. There was a _reason_ for the if (1 /* alternative path needs testing */ || which the above-mentioned commit removed :) Discovered and debugged by Giulio Fedel <giulio.fedel@andorsystems.com> Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <dwmw2@infradead.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
