_filter_mkfs is a filter so that it should read from stdin first
before printing anything out. Otherwise the command prior to the
pipeline may get EPIPE.

I saw this when testing extN with generic/204, _scratch_mkfs_sized was
unable to create fs because of EPIPE, then _scratch_mount failed.

generic/204 12s ... [failed, exit status 1] - output mismatch (see

v2: just pipe stdin to /dev/null for non-xfs fs as Dave suggested.
