The workaround looks ok, but I still do not understand how we end up
with writing -1. The only place c->gc_lnum is set to -1 is in GC, but it
is then initialized properly, and only error can cause GC to return with
c->gc_lnum == -1, in which case we switch to R/O mode immediately.
Is your UBIFS identical to what I have in my 2.6.27 back-port tree?
Also, I will have really little time till the beginning of September, so
probably this will wait...
