Thanks for you help to review this patch. There's an new failure[1] after we
merged this patch:
  "SHOULD FAIL remounting ext2 "commit=7" (remount unexpectedly succeeded) FAILED"

As this test generally passed, so before I give "Oops" to others, I hope to
check with you that if this's an expected failure we need to fix in kernel
or in this case itself?

Thanks,
Zorro
