That might make sense, I don't think we need the loudness for EWRONGFS
no matter how we got there.  

But:

Out of curiosity, what was the actual mount command you used?  It seems like
the auto-probing should have set the MS_SILENT flag to avoid this in
the first place, i.e. we should have gone down the quiet path
(xfs_sb_quiet_read_verify) and avoided this altogether.

How do you reproduce this?


If I were to patch xfs_read_sb_verify, I'd probably do it like this:

diff --git a/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.c b/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.c
index f6bfbd7..7488335 100644
--- a/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.c
+++ b/fs/xfs/xfs_mount.c
@@ -723,7 +723,9 @@ xfs_sb_read_verify(
 
 out_error:
        if (error) {
-               XFS_CORRUPTION_ERROR(__func__, XFS_ERRLEVEL_LOW, mp, 
bp->b_addr);
+               if (error != EWRONGFS)
+                       XFS_CORRUPTION_ERROR(__func__, XFS_ERRLEVEL_LOW,
+                                            mp, bp->b_addr);
                xfs_buf_ioerror(bp, error);
        }
 }

Because it keeps a single return point in the function, and . . .

XFS_ERROR() is never used on the right side of a test; it's only to turn an 
error
return into a BUG_ON for certain error numbers when they're set; i.e. it'd
fire in xfs_mount_validate_sb before we ever got to the caller:

                xfs_warn(mp, "bad magic number");
                return XFS_ERROR(EWRONGFS); /* would BUG if configured to do so 
*/

Thanks,
