Thanks. I see the commit id e905fbe3fd0fdb90052f6efdf88f50a78833cfe7
in the above URL. I didn't add it since I'm not sure if this id will
be the final id when the commit is finally merged to the mainline
kernel (Linus tree)?

Yes I can add a few words in the commit log, but actually I expect the
reader of this test reads the commit message of the mentioned commit
"ext4: Fix tune2fs checksum failure for mounted filesystem", which I
think is more precise.

I will correct it in the next version. Thanks.

The $SCRATCH_DEV was still mounted before this _cleanup(), so I'm
wondering why we shouldn't do _scratch_unmount here? And I see at
least another similar structured test ext4/306 do _scratch_unmount in
_cleanup().

No. I will remove this line in my next version.

I think this bug is heavily related to "tune2fs", ext4 only. So I
guess an ext4 only test is enough?

Yes I can rename it to something like ext4-309.tmp if it looks better.

How did you test that? The error output didn't break the "golden
image" in my test.
