Two options:
1. have next point to 0xffffffff and replace the whole block it's in
2. have next point to a validated clean area (esp. no magic) and force 
the next cbfs_file header there.

2. is better, but there might be the rare corner case that the intended 
area is fixed memory for a new entry.

I guess we can live with that, right?
