Because when a user reports a data corruption, the only evidence we
have that they are running an app that does something stupid is this
warning in their syslogs. Tracepoints are not useful for replacing
warnings about data corruption vectors being triggered.

It needs to be on by default, bu tI'm sure we can wrap it with
something like an xfs_alert_tag() type of construct so the tag can
be set in /proc/fs/xfs/panic_mask to suppress it if testers so
desire.

Cheers,

Dave.
