Pushed to linux-ubifs.git, branch "joel", thanks.

But please, note, that this patch was also a bit big for review. The
better way would be make things like re-naming to be separate, etc. In
general, all non-brainers (everything you can do with a simple regexp,
like re-naming) should be separate. Then reviewer knows that he should
not spend to much time on that noise. And "brainers" go separate.

Best Regards,
