UBIFS: prepare to fix a horrid bug
Al Viro pointed me to the fact that '->readdir()' and '->llseek()' have no mutual exclusion, which means the 'ubifs_dir_llseek()' can be run while we are in the middle of 'ubifs_readdir()'. First of all, this means that 'file->private_data' can be freed while 'ubifs_readdir()' uses it. But this particular patch does not fix the problem. This patch is only a preparation, and the fix will follow next. In this patch we make 'ubifs_readdir()' stop using 'file->f_pos' directly, because 'file->f_pos' can be changed by '->llseek()' at any point. This may lead 'ubifs_readdir()' to returning inconsistent data: directory entry names may correspond to incorrect file positions. So here we introduce a local variable 'pos', read 'file->f_pose' once at very the beginning, and then stick to 'pos'. The result of this is that when 'ubifs_dir_llseek()' changes 'file->f_pos' while we are in the middle of 'ubifs_readdir()', the latter "wins".
