This gave me a good chuckle. :)  I will check for a
EXT4_ERR_EFSCORRUPTED and propose a fix on ext4.

As requested, I will not send a new version of the test for now. I
published them on the following unstable branch: -b fan-fs-error

The v1, as submitted in this thread is also available at: -b fan-fs-error-v1
