I don't think removing this is a good idea. The quiet flag is used
to silence all filesystem warnings when the kernel is blindly trying
all filesystem types when searching for the correct root fs type.
If we always print warnings here people will get annoying messages
when that happens for a non-XFS rootfs that we're asked to verify.
I'd rather make check_inprogress another flag here.
