It would be better to fold this into the previous patch, since it will
otherwise cause the inode checksum algorithm to change in the middle of the patch series.

On a related note, in ext4_new_inode() it would be useful to change the
setting of i_generation so that it skips i_generation == 0, which doesn't
contribute to the checksum:

spin_lock(&sbi->s_next_gen_lock);
inode->i_generation = sbi->s_next_generation++;
+ if (unlikely(inode->i_generation == 0))
+ inode->i_generation = sbi->s_next_generation++;
spin_unlock(&sbi->s_next_gen_lock);

This should get an ext4_warning() in the non-checksum case to warn
users that this ioctl is deprecated and will be removed in the
future unless there is a good reason to keep it.

Cheers, Andreas
