I'm sorry. It's my fault. I've modified Christoph's patch but I forgot to
enable JFS in the test build. Since this isn't the first time something
like this happened to me, I've changed the way I commit patches. They'll
first go to for_testing branch and after a build machine runs them through
allyesconfig and allmodconfig compiles they'll get moved to for_next
branch. So hopefully stupid mistakes like this one should be avoided for
