Subject: [PATCH 03/27] jffs2: hold erase_completion_lock on exit

commit 2cbba75a56ea78e6876b4e2547a882f10b3fe72b upstream.

Users of jffs2_do_reserve_space() expect they still held
erase_completion_lock after call to it. But there is a path
where jffs2_do_reserve_space() leaves erase_completion_lock unlocked.
The patch fixes it.
