jffs2: Fix mounting under new mount API
The mounting of jffs2 is broken due to the changes from the new mount API because it specifies a "source" operation, but then doesn't actually process it. But because it specified it, it doesn't return -ENOPARAM and the caller doesn't process it either and the source gets lost. Fix this by simply removing the source parameter from jffs2 and letting the VFS deal with it in the default manner. To test it, enable CONFIG_MTD_MTDRAM and allow the default size and erase block size parameters, then try and mount the /dev/mtdblock<N> file that that creates as jffs2. No need to initialise it.
