The version provided in this patch was tested. However I don't know how to cope
with the offs parameter of __jffs2_dbg_dump_buffer() if I replace the current
source code by a call to print_hex_dump().
If I use DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS as prefix_type value, the printed offsets are
relative to the address of buf in RAM, not to the hardware offset in my
dataflash provided by the offs parameter.
Also, if I use DUMP_PREFIX_OFFSET, the printed offsets start from 0 instead of
offs value.

I think keeping the right offsets in the output dump is helpfull.
