From: Artem Bityutskiy <Artem.Bityutskiy@nokia.com>

This is the second fix of the following symptom:

UBIFS error (pid 34456): could not find an empty LEB

which sometimes happens after power cuts when we mount the file-system - UBIFS
refuses it with the above error message which comes from the
'ubifs_rcvry_gc_commit()' function. I can reproduce this using the integck test
with the UBIFS power cut emulation enabled.

Analysis of the problem.

Currently UBIFS replay seeks the journal heads to the last _replayed_ bud.
But the buds are replayed out-of-order, so the replay basically seeks journal
heads to the "random" bud belonging to this head, and not to the _last_ one.

The result of this is that the GC head may be seeked to a full LEB with no free
space, or very little free space. And 'ubifs_rcvry_gc_commit()' tries to find a
fully or mostly dirty LEB to match the current GC head (because we need to
garbage-collect that dirty LEB at one go, because we do not have @c->gc_lnum).
So 'ubifs_find_dirty_leb()' fails and we fall back to finding an empty LEB and
also fail. As a result - recovery fails and mounting fails.

This patch teaches the replay to initialize the GC heads exactly to the latest
buds, i.e. the buds which have the largest sequence number in corresponding
log reference nodes.
