Subject: [PATCH] ceph: demote quotarealm lookup warning to a debug message

A misconfigured cephx can easily result in having the kernel client
flooding the logs with:

  ceph: Can't lookup inode 1 (err: -13)

Change his message to debug level.

Signed-off-by: Luis Henriques <>

This patch should fix some harmless warnings when using cephx to restrict
users access to certain filesystem paths.  I've added a comment to the
tracker where removing this warning could result (unlikely, IMHO!) in an
admin to miss not-so-harmless bogus configurations.
