Possible JFFS2 bug

I'm not using JFFS2, but I happened to be reading the code in 2.4.18
I notice that if the filldir returns <0 during the fill for "." and "..", the
execution gotos out:. This bypasses the down() of the semaphore, however the
semaphore still gets up()ed.
The up without a corresponding down was, I hunch, unintended.
Maybe someone using the code would like to take a look.
