Here is the second pass ontop, just to show what I am
doing. I will wrap it up into one patch one we agree.

Subject: [PATCH] s/jffs2_erase_pending_trigger/jffs2_garbage_collect_trigger/

Since erasing is done in GC now, trigger GC instead.
jffs2_erase_pending_trigger() renamed to jffs2_dirty_trigger() and
used by wbuf. Remove call jffs2_garbage_collect_trigger() in
write_super()
