Re: [f2fs-dev] [PATCH 13/13] f2fs: don't recovery orphan inode on readonly device




Thanks for the explanation.

And yes, this patch fixed it, the kernel log is now clean.

Thanks!

[   22.506553] F2FS-fs (loop0): write access unavailable, skipping
orphan cleanup
[   22.506555] F2FS-fs (loop0): recover fsync data on readonly fs
[   22.506556] F2FS-fs (loop0): quota file may be corrupted, skip loading it
[   22.507015] F2FS-fs (loop0): Mounted with checkpoint version = 26e7ba3e
