Well, I would not expect a FAN_FS_ERROR event to ever have 0 error
value. Since this test practically only tests ext4, I do not think it
is reasonable
for the test to VERIFY a bug. It is fine to write this test with expectations
that are not met and let it fail.

But a better plan would probably be to merge the patches up to 5 to test
FAN_FS_ERROR and then add more test cases after ext4 is fixed
Either that or you fix the ext4 problem along with FAN_FS_ERROR.

Forgot to say that the test needs to declare .needs_cmds "debugfs".

In any case, as far as prerequisite to merging FAN_FS_ERROR
your WIP tests certainly suffice.
Please keep your test branch around so we can use it to validate
the kernel patches.
I usually hold off on submitting LTP tests for inclusion until at least -rc3
after kernel patches have been merged.

Thanks,
Amir.
