UBIFS: optimize deletions
Every time anything is deleted, UBIFS writes the deletion inode node twice - once in 'ubifs_jnl_update()' and the second time in 'ubifs_jnl_write_inode()'. However, the second write is not needed if no commit happened after 'ubifs_jnl_update()'. This patch checks that condition and avoids writing the deletion inode for the second time.

/**
+ * ubifs_jnl_write_inode - delete an inode.
+ * @c: UBIFS file-system description object
+ * @inode: inode to delete
+ *
+ * This function deletes inode @inode which includes removing it from orphans,
+ * deleting it from TNC and, in some cases, writing a deletion inode to the
+ * journal.
+ *
+ * When regular file inodes are unlinked or a directory inode is removed, the
+ * 'ubifs_jnl_update()' function write corresponding deletion inode and
+ * direntry to the media, and adds the inode to orphans. After this, when the
+ * last reference to this inode has been dropped, this function is called. In
+ * general, it has to write one more deletion inode to the media, because if
+ * a commit happened between 'ubifs_jnl_update()' and
+ * 'ubifs_jnl_delete_inode()', the deletion inode is not in the journal
+ * anymore, and in fact it might be not on the flash anymore, becouse it might
+ * have been garbage-collected already. And for optimization reasond UBIFS does
+ * not read the orphan area if it has been unmounted cleanly, so it would have
+ * no indication in the journal that there is a deleted inode which has to be
+ * removed from TNC.
+ *
+ * However, if there was no commit between 'ubifs_jnl_update()' and
+ * 'ubifs_jnl_delete_inode()', then there is no need to write the deletion
+ * inode to the media for the second time. And this is quite typical case.
+ *
+ * This function returns zero in case of success and a negative error code in
+ * case of failure.
