[PATCH] ubifs: allow more than one volume to be mounted

UBIFS uses a bdi device per volume, but does not care to hand out unique
names to each of them. This causes an error when trying to mount more
than one volumes.

[  239.277407] kobject_add_internal failed for ubifs with -EEXIST, don't try to register things with the same name in the same directory.

Append the UBI volume and device ID to avoid that.
