Cpu pipeline / compiler can make code out-of-order execution, which means:

a = 1;
b = 2;

may actually be executed as the order of:

b = 2;
a = 1;

So I doubt that below two line codes can be executed out-of-order:

else
	__clear_ckpt_flags(ckpt, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG); --- clear flag later

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

> flag, CP_QUOTA_NEED_FSCK_FLAG.

Agreed, I've checked each operation in f2fs_quota_operations yesterday, and
didn't find any missing places yet...
