So, this patch introduces the first in an ongoing series of in-place
filesystem version changes with xfs_repair and the "-c" (convert)
To turn on/off the lazy-superblock feature, run the following xfs_repair
commmand on your filesystem:
# xfs_repair -c lazycount=[0|1] <device>
How about adding this to xfs_admin as well, since some flag changes are
already in there?
i.e. xfs_admin -<something... l and L are taken> could invoke xfs_repair
-c lazycount ...?
Ah... should have read this bit :) Yes, will do! (Was thinking initially
to add the support to xfs_db then telling the user to run repair rather
than the xfs_admin script running repair directly!)
It just strikes me as a tad confusing that to change v2 logs or
unwritten extent support, you use xfs_admin, and to change lazy sb
counters, you must run repair...
(I understand that repair must be run post-change, but a common tool to
invoke all feature changes seems good to me)
