Sorry, didn't know. here's the short version:
npages_for_summary_flush uses (SUMMARY_SIZE + 1) as the size of a f2fs_summary
while its actual size is SUMMARY_SIZE. So the result sometimes is bigger than
actual number by one, which causes checkpoint can't be written into disk contiguously,
and sometimes summary blocks can't be compacted like they should.
Besides, when writing summary blocks into pages, if remain space in a page isn't
big enough for one f2fs_summary, it will be left unused, current code seems
not to take it into account.
