The above two descriptions are still somewhat misleading - in fact we don't
know whether accounting is enabled or not. Just *if* it is enabled, quota
will be journalled / non-journalled. So I'd probably describe it like:
 * journalled - quota configured, journalling will be enabled
 * writeback - quota configured, journalling will be disabled

We've talked with Ted on last ext4 conf call and we agreed that it's
probably time to deprecate old style quotas in external quota files and
transition everybody to using quotas with quota feature. That way things
will get simpler again. But before we can disable that functionality, it
will take a few years of deprecation warnings etc. so that's not directly
related to your patch here. JFYI.
