A new bad news:
This patch make filesystem unstable.

My env entered to following command line in booting after
apply this patch to v4.0-rc1:

Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type "journalctl -xb: to view
System logs, ...
Give root password for maintenance
(or press Control-D to continue)

I confirmed this error message for more than 3 times.
(and confirmed no-problem without this patch)

In previous performance test(which get result in my last mail), I hadn't
pay attention to that message, and just type Ctrl-D and begin test.

Thanks
Zhaolei
