jffs2: allow to complete xattr integrity check on first GC scan
Unlike file data integrity the xattr data integrity was not checked before some explicit access to the attribute was made. This could leave in the system a number of corrupted extended attributes which will be detected only at access time and possibly at a very late time compared to the time the corruption actually happened. This patch adds the ability to check for extended attribute integrity on first GC scan pass (similar to file data integrity check). This allows for all present attributes to be completly verified before any use of them. In order to work correctly this patch also needs the patch allowing JFFS2 to discriminate between recoverable and non recoverable errors on extended attributes.
