Yup, recovery should be considered,

Later fsync() will fail due to:

int f2fs_sync_file(struct file *file, loff_t start, loff_t end, int datasync)
{
	if (unlikely(f2fs_cp_error(F2FS_I_SB(file_inode(file)))))
		return -EIO;


And we need to adjust f2fs_fsync_node_pages() to handle in-process fsyncing node
pages as well:

if (f2fs_cp_error()) {
	set_fsync_mark(page, 0);
	set_dentry_mark(page, 0);
	if (atomic) {
		unlock & put page;
		ret = -EIO;
		break;
	}
}

ret = __write_node_page();
