The other thing is that all the tests in xfstests can be run with
quota enabled to exercise the code rather than test for correctness.
This is done by running like:

# MOUNT_OPTIONS="-o usrquota,grpquota" ./check -g auto

And that makes all the tests run with user and group quotas enabled
for XFS. However, we might need a bit of help in the mount paths for
filesystems that require a quotaon command before they will run
all the generic tests with quotas enabled.
