Subject: Re: [PATCH e2fsprogs] UPDATED: ignore "safe" flag differences when
 fsck compares superblocks

Ok.  Unfortunately, that one really hurts on fedora, or any distro which
writes xattrs during install.

The installer mkfs's, mounts, installs with selinux, reboots => force
recheck of the entire filesystem, because the kernel wrote extended
attributes for selinux, but only to the primary superblock.

Solely having this set in primary but not in the backups should hardly
be a trigger for a full filesystem check, should it?
