Rational for JFFS2 deletion dirent ?

Hi all,

I'm currently looking at the JFFS2 code, and I was wondering why the
unlink operation creates a deletion dirent. Isn't it sufficient to mark
the old dirent as obsolete ?

BTW, I can't find where deletion dirents are actually removed, except when
their parent directory is removed or their erasure block is garbage
collected, have I missed other places ?
