UBIFS: add a superblock flag for free space fix-up
The 'space_fixup' flag can be set in the superblock of a new filesystem by mkfs.ubifs to indicate that any eraseblocks with free space remaining should be fixed-up the first time it's mounted (after which the flag is un-set). This means that the UBIFS image has been flashed by a "dumb" flasher and the free space has been actually programmed (writing all 0xFFs), so this free space cannot be used. UBIFS fixes the free space up by re-writing the contents of all LEBs with free space using the atomic LEB change UBI operation. Artem: improved commit message, add some more commentaries to the code.
