Subject[PATCH 4.14 387/496] ext4: dont complain about incorrect features when probing
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 0d9366d67bcf066b028e57d09c9a86ce879bcc28 ]

If mount is auto-probing for filesystem type, it will try various
filesystems in order, with the MS_SILENT flag set. We get
that flag as the silent arg to ext4_fill_super.

If we're probing (silent==1) then don't complain about feature
incompatibilities that are found if it looks like it's actually
a different valid extN type - failed probes should be silent
in this case.

If the on-disk features are unknown even to ext4, then complain.
