This patch just looks wrong.  RO_COMPAT_GDT_CSUM is the old feature,
and doesn't imply that there will be a checksum in the inode bitmap
block.  Shouldn't this be RO_COMPAT_METADATA_CSUM?

By the way, the bugs which I'm finding in this patch series are
seriously degrading my faith about how well both they and the kernel
side patches have been tested.....

At this point I will probably work on other kernel patches, and return
to this later.

P.S.  Note that if I apply the full patch series, I am still finding
45 (out of 118) test failures from the regression test suite.  While I
was bisecting to find errors, I found this one by quick inspection.
