[JFFS2] Improve getdents vs. f_pos handling on NOR flash.

Commit a491486a started obliterating
dirents directly on the medium, when jffs2_can_mark_obsolete(). Removing
them immediately from the f->dents list, however, screws up handling of
f_pos within a directory -- because the offset is equivalent to the
number of entries through the list we are, and the existence of
deletion dirents served to provide 'placeholders' for unlinked
entries. Now, 'rm -r' doesn't even manage to unlink everything in the

Revert to keeping 'deletion' dirents in the list, at least in memory
even though we no longer write anything to the medium.
