Subject: [PATCH][next] udf: Fix undefined behavior bug in struct

`struct fileIdentDesc` is a flexible structure, which means that it
contains a flexible-array member at the bottom. This could potentially
lead to an overwrite of the objects following `fi` in `struct
udf_fileident_iter` at run-time.

Fix this by placing the declaration of object `fi` at the end of
`struct udf_fileident_iter`.

-Wflex-array-member-not-at-end is coming in GCC-14, and we are getting
ready to enable it globally.

Fixes: d16076d9b684 ("udf: New directory iteration code")
