Bug#47490: base: mke2fs makes unmountable filesystems; mount doesn't honor -o nocheck
I was wrong. Earlier I claimed that mount was
unable to handle a filesystem with a non-default
inode/block ratio ("couldn't mount RDWR"). However,
my reasoning was wrong.
In actuality the new mke2fs is making filesystems that
the latest mount command will not tolerate.
I've heard that we need to start using the
mount -o nocheck (or check=none) option to mount the
newly created filesystems with the "sparse superblock"
However, that option is not honored with my copy of
mount (2.9x). mke2fs version is 1.15.
e2fsprogs version 1.15-3
