UBIFS: add R/O compatibility
Now UBIFS is supported by u-boot. If we ever decide to change the media format, then people will have to upgrade their u-boots to mount new format images. However, very often it is possible to preserve R/O forward-compatibility, even though the write forward-compatibility is not preserved. This patch introduces a new super-block field which stores the R/O compatibility version.
