Yes, node #2 contains newly updated LBAx of page #2, but if page #2 is not
committed to LBAx, after recovery, page #2 's block address in node #2 will
point to LBAx which contains random data, result in corrupted db file.

f2fs will ensure GCed data being persisted during checkpoint, so migrated page
#1 and updated node #1 will both be committed in this checkpoint.

Please check WB_DATA_TYPE macro to see how we define data type that cp
guarantees to writeback.

If node #2 is committed only, it will be harmful to db transaction due to the
reason I said above.

Thanks,
