Hi Christoph,

I'd like to explain the reason why I sent the patch series.

Here is an example where I activated user quota and set each softlimit and
hardlimit as follows.

       | softlimit | hardlimit 
 block |    1M     |    2M
 inode |     3     |     5

I succeeded to create files up to the inode hardlimit using touch command.
The quota information is shown as follows.

# xfs_quota -x -c 'report -u -b -i -h' /mnt/xfs2
User quota on /mnt/xfs2 (/dev/vdb)
                        Blocks                            Inodes              
User ID      Used   Soft   Hard Warn/Grace     Used   Soft   Hard Warn/Grace  
---------- --------------------------------- --------------------------------- 
root            0      0      0  00 [------]      3      0      0  00 [------]
xfstest01       0     1M     2M  00 [------]      5      3      5  00 [6 days]
                                                 ~~~~           ~~

However, I failed to create and add another file due to the quota limitation.

$ touch /mnt/xfs2/dir00/file05
touch: cannot touch `/mnt/xfs2/dir00/file05': Disk quota exceeded

It seems the inode quota works well.

Regarding the block quota, I got the quota limitation message even if I
created a 2MB file which is equal to the hardlimit of disk quota.

$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/xfs2/dir00/file01 bs=2M count=1
dd: writing `/mnt/xfs2/dir00/file01': Disk quota exceeded
1+0 records in                       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
0+0 records out
2093056 bytes (2.1 MB) copied, 0.00561516 s, 373 MB/s

I'd like to change the available range of the block quota, and
also change the inode quota check to the same way as the block check
introduced in PATCH 2/3 to make it more general.
