Subject: [PATCH] journal: assume that next entry is after previous entry

With a corrupted file, we can get in a situation where two entries
in the entry array point to the same object. Then journal_file_next_entry
will find the first one using generic_arrray_bisect, and try to move to
the second one, but since the address is the same, generic_array_get will
return the first one. journal_file_next_entry ends up in an infinite loop.
