Thanks for your kindly reply...

Yes, I remember the above code you already mentioned months ago... The
detail is that

It is for debugging use as you said below, mainly for our internal
testers whose jobs are
to read kmsg logs and catch kernel problems. sb->s_id (device number)
maybe not
straight-forward for them compared with dev_name...

The initial purpose of erofs_mount_private was to passing multi private
data from erofs_mount
to erofs_read_super, which was written before fs_contest was introduced.

I agree with you, it seems better to just use s_id in community and
delete erofs_mount_private stuffs...
Yet I don't look into how to use new fs_context, could I keep using
legacy mount interface and fix them all?

OK, make sense. I will do...

I guess if I don't misunderstand, that is another suggestion -- in
short, leave all destructors to .kill_sb() and
cleanup fill_super(). I think it makes sense as well, though the reason
why the initial erofs code was is that
I just refer other filesystems such as ext4 and f2fs which handle
failure in fill_super() constructor as well.
Anyway, your suggestion is a good idea (it's more cleaner), I will play
with it.

I will kill dev_name in patch v3 at least, and try to clean up all
failure exits as you mentioned.

Thanks for your suggestions... Let me resend v3 later :)

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
