xfsprogs: reduce bb_numrecs in bno/cnt btrees when log consumes all
The mkfs code currently creates a single free space extent record
for each of the bno and cnt btrees in each AG. The start block of
the record is pushed forward on the AG that hosts an internal log.
If the log happens to consume all available space in the AG, the
start block becomes equal to sb->sb_agblocks and thus invalid.
This causes xfs_repair to complain.
For example, the following sequence:
mkfs.xfs -d file,name=./fs.img,size=50g,agsize=16m
... produces the following xfs_repair output:
Phase 1 - find and verify superblock...
Phase 2 - using internal log
- scan filesystem freespace and inode maps...
invalid start block 4096 in record 0 of bno btree block 1600/1
invalid start block 4096 in record 0 of cnt btree block 1600/2
- found root inode chunk
xfs_repair appears to correct the numrecs value such that subsequent
checks are successful. The sequence above is pulled from xfstests
test #250, which fails due to this behavior.
Modify mkfs.xfs such that we check the block count value of the
free space record for the log AG after the log is accounted for. If
no space is left for the record, reset the record count to 0.
