I think Dave has an interesting idea here. 

You already have:

1) only set XFS_XFLAG_PROJINHERIT on directories in setup_project,

2) update check_project to print the right warning based upon the above,

Now all you need is:

3) update _check_scratch_fs to filter
        "directory flags set on non-directory inode %llu"

I guess the downside of that is the test might subsequently miss other
related failure modes of xfs_repair.  Maybe it would be better to make
xfs_repair have a separate error message for this specific case, and
then filter that out of the test output.  How would you know when it's
ok to remove the filter?
