After commit 4fdcfab5b553 ("jffs2: fix use-after-free on symlink
traversal"), it expose a freeing uninitialized memory problem due to
this commit move the operaion of freeing f->target to
jffs2_i_callback(), which may not be initialized in some error path of
allocating jffs2 inode (eg: jffs2_iget()->iget_locked()->
destroy_inode()->..->jffs2_i_callback()->kfree(f->target)).

Fix this by initialize the jffs2_inode_info just after allocating it.
