OK. I will remove the _cleanup() in my next version, unless someone
else has other opinions.

OK. I will modify it to

echo "This is a test" > $SCRATCH_MNT/testfile

Unless someone else has other preferences.

Unless I missed something, I would say that, tune2fs' error output
went to .out.bad just because you had modified the tune2fs line from
mine:

$TUNE2FS_PROG -l $SCRATCH_DEV >> $seqres.full 2>&1

to yours:

$TUNE2FS_PROG -l $SCRATCH_DEV >/dev/null

My original version redirecting stderr and stdout both to $seqres.full
doesn't break the "golden output". Test log:
```

```

As far as I can understand, there're at least two approaches to mark a
test pass or fail in xfstests:
1) Compare the output of the test with the "golden output" (i.e.
309.out), I guess this is the approach you mentioned.
2) Exit the test with the value of $status (i.e. status=0 - pass,
status=non-zero - fail)

I'm using the 2) here, not using 1) with the output of tune2fs
compared with the 309.out, because the output of tune2fs can be
different in different runs. An example output of a successful tune2fs
run is like (sorry for this long paste):
```
