Sorry. I ran ahead without explaining.
I would like to set MEDIA_FAILURE when a format error is detected so that fsck will be run on the next mount.
This patch is the basis for setting MEDIA_FAILURE.

But, I have no reason to implement this right now, as you say.
I'll add it in a patch that sets MEDIA_FAILURE.

I would like your opinion on the timing of clearing VOLUME_DIRTY.
