[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.0 33/66] jffs2: fix use-after-free on symlink traversal

From: Al Viro <viro at zeniv.linux.org.uk>

[ Upstream commit 4fdcfab5b5537c21891e22e65996d4d0dd8ab4ca ]

free the symlink body after the same RCU delay we have for freeing the
struct inode itself, so that traversal during RCU pathwalk wouldn't step
into freed memory.
