This is only cosmetic, why not stick to feature_compat and
feature_incompat?

With the different that it keeps you isolated from the buffer_head
internals. This seems to be your only direct use of buffer heads,
which while not deprecated are a bit of an ugly step child. So if
you can easily avoid creating a buffer_head dependency in a new
filesystem I think you should avoid it.

Who fills out this field in the on-disk format and how?

Yes. Although none of that is relevant for this initial version,
just after more features are added.
