nilfs2: fix buggy behavior seen in enumerating checkpoints

This will fix the weird behavior of lscp command in listing continuously
created checkpoints; the output of lscp is rewinded regularly for the
recent nilfs.  As a result of debugging, a defect was found in
nilfs_cpfile_do_get_cpinfo() function.

Though the function can be repeatedly called to enumerate checkpoints and
it can skip invalid checkpoint entries, the index value was not carried
between successive calls.

The bug has long been present, and came to surface after applying a bugfix
nilfs2-fix-problems-of-memory-allocation-in-ioctl.patch, which increased
frequency of calling the function.  The similar bugfix was already applied
for ``snapshots'' by

This fixes the problem by making the index argument bidirectional on the
