FS#2262 - “Reset to defaults” does not remove all files/directories

In the GUI, if you wipe your router with “Reset to defaults”, it does not correctly remove “hidden” directories such as .ssh/

The file and directory walking in jffs2reset.c, when done from the GUI, is not including the “hidden” subdirectories (and possibly hidden files).

When I do “umount /overlay && jffs2reset && reboot” from the command line, the .ssh/ directory is fully removed as expected.
