Yup, good catch.

Same as for all the rest of the metadata. It identifies the
filesystem it belongs to so we can detect and trace misplaced writes
instantly, rather than, say, having to spend months of debugging
with FC analysers to prove the storage array firmware has a bug in
it and that's what is causing the filesystem corruption.

Cheers,

Dave.
