I know it's subtle... and I agreed we can fix it like this in upstream
first, but in our product, it's not rare that we hit the
QUOTA_SKIP_FLUSH(its value is 4) case, later we may encounter long latency
caused by quota repairing of fsck.

But later if QUOTA_NEED_REPAIR is set, we will set QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG
again, right?

if (is_sbi_flag_set(sbi, SBI_QUOTA_NEED_REPAIR))
	__set_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG);


So in order to figure out whether this is caused by out-of-order execution
of below assignments:

	if (is_sbi_flag_set(sbi, SBI_QUOTA_SKIP_FLUSH))
		__set_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG);
	else
		__clear_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG); --- clear flag later

	if (is_sbi_flag_set(sbi, SBI_QUOTA_NEED_REPAIR))
		__set_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG); --- set flag first


Could you have a try:

	if (is_sbi_flag_set(sbi, SBI_QUOTA_NEED_REPAIR) ||
			is_sbi_flag_set(sbi, SBI_QUOTA_SKIP_FLUSH))
		__set_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG);
	else
		__clear_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG);

Thanks,
