Yes, I know. Maybe you somewhat misread my words.
Though remount_fs is dependent on changing background_gc option, but the change of background_gc option
and the adding remount_fs support are two different changes.
In order to make each patch simple and clear, maybe you need to split into single ones,
such as:
[PATCH 1/3] f2fs: Modify the f2fs background_gc mount option
[PATCH 2/3] f2fs: add remount_fs callback support
[PATCH 3/3] f2fs: reorganise the function get_victim_by_default

Just a personal suggestion, if you think it is worthless, please ignore it.:)

Maybe. If the old mount is RO, so does the remount. It still can pass the judgement here, right?
Though the following stop_gc_thread() and f2fs_sync_fs() can handle this case well, but this
is unnecessary and needless. If we add additional judgement of whether old mount is not RO can avoid this.

Thanks,
Gu
