Could you explain more about security concern.. Do you get any report from user
or tools that complaining f2fs issue/codes?

I'm not against sanity check for basic core data of filesystem in run-time, but,
in order to troubleshoot root cause of this issue we can trigger panic directly
to dump more info under F2FS_CHECK_FS macro.

So, maybe we can change as below?

blk_off = le16_to_cpu(ckpt->cur_data_blkoff[i]);
+if (blk_off > ENTRIES_IN_SUM) {
+	f2fs_bug_on(1);
+	f2fs_put_page(page, 1);
+	return -EFAULT;
+}

Thanks,
