I try not to be a Grammar Nazi and a jerk on every patches, but since
this is a message a user would directly encounter, I'd like to see a
bit less ambiguous message.

How about "using deprecated layout of large_nat_bitmap, please run
fsck v1.13.0 or higher to repair, chksum_offset: %zu"?
The original message seems to suggest that large_nat_bitmap is
deprecated outright.

Also, I'd like to suggest to write down an actual version of
f2fs-tools here as we've seen older versions of fsck doing even more
damage and the users might not have the latest f2fs-tools installed.

Btw, what happens if we use the latest fsck to fix the corrupted image
and use the older kernel to mount it?
Would it even mount?
