I'm thinking to add tunesb.f2fs to edit superblock explicitly, since it has
to edit it without getting superblock/checkpoint and other f2fs metadata.

For example,
# tunesb.f2fs -c /dev/sdb -c /dev/sdc /dev/sda
.. superblock info ..
.. device list ..
.. hot/cold extensions ..

Will modify the device list, if it's different from parameter.
