Also the problem is that ext4_parse_param() is called before
__ext4_fill_super(). Hence when we overwrite ctx->journal_ioprio to default
value in __ext4_fill_super(), that will end up ignoring the user passed
journal_ioprio value via mount opts (which was passed earlier in
ext4_parse_param()).

Yup, here also ext4_parse_param() is called before __ext4_remount().
Hence we should check if the user has passed it's value in mount opts, if not,
only then we should use the task original ioprio.


I tested this patch and with the patch applied, the task ioprio can be correctly
set using "journal_ioprio" mount option.

"Mount test"
=============
qemu-> sudo perf record -e probe:* -aR mount -o journal_ioprio=1 /dev/loop2 /mnt
qemu-> ps -eaf |grep -E "jbd2|loop2"
root        3506       2  0 07:41 ?        00:00:00 [jbd2/loop2-8]

           mount  3504 [000]  2503.106871: probe:ext4_parse_param_L222: (ffffffff8147817f) journal_ioprio=16385 spec=32
           mount  3504 [000]  2503.106908: probe:__ext4_fill_super_L26: (ffffffff8147a650) journal_ioprio=16385 spec=32
qemu-> ionice -p 3506
best-effort: prio 1

"remount test"
=================
qemu-> sudo perf record -e probe:* -aR mount -o remount,journal_ioprio=0 /dev/loop2 /mnt
qemu-> sudo perf script
           mount  3519 [000]  2544.958850: probe:ext4_parse_param_L222: (ffffffff8147817f) journal_ioprio=16384 spec=32
           mount  3519 [000]  2544.958860:    probe:__ext4_remount_L49: (ffffffff81479da2) journal_ioprio=16384 spec=32
qemu-> ionice -p 3506
best-effort: prio 0

"remount with no mount options"
=================================
qemu-> sudo perf record -e probe:* -aR mount -o remount /dev/loop2 /mnt
qemu-> ionice -p 3506
best-effort: prio 0
qemu-> sudo perf script
           mount  3530 [000]  2575.964048:    probe:__ext4_remount_L49: (ffffffff81479da2) journal_ioprio=16384 spec=0

We should add fixes tag too. Can you please confirm if that would be this patch?
"ext4: Completely separate options parsing and sb setup".

With that feel free to add below -
