Hum, I'm not sure about this. The state of quota can be found out with
"quotaon -p <mntpoint>" (or corresponding quotactl if you need this from
C). The only thing you won't learn is journalled / writeback mode and
generally you should not care about this although I agree that for fs
crash testing purposes you may care. But is that big enough usecase for a
new sysfs file when all the information is already available for userspace
just not in a convenient form?

BTW, I've now realized ext4_any_quota_enabled() has actually misleading
name in the sysfs file reports wrong information. It is rather
ext4_any_quota_may_be_enabled() since presence of QUOTA mount option only
says that quotaon(8) will enable quotas if it is run, not that quota
accounting is enabled. sb_any_quota_loaded() tells you if accounting is
actually enabled or not (however this can change anytime so that's why we
use more relaxed checks for the purpose of journal credit estimates).
