Please use present tense: "could" => "can".  Otherwise this can be interpreted
as the opposite of what you meant.

Also, "cleared" instead of "disabled", to be consistent with the rest of the

Likewise, "couldn't" => "can't".

Also, what are the semantics of disabling casefold, exactly?  Do the encoding
and encoding flags fields in the superblock also get cleared?
