[PATCH v2] xfstests: use value of FSTYP if defined externally

To: xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: [PATCH v2] xfstests: use value of FSTYP if defined externally
From: David Sterba <dsterba@xxxxxxx>
Date: Wed, 22 Jan 2014 15:38:02 +0100
Cc: David Sterba <dsterba@xxxxxxx>
Delivered-to: xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx
The initial value of FSTYP is unconditionally set to 'xfs' and the
filesystem type is taken from the TEST_DEV. This could lead to confusion
if the device hasn't been formatted yet, eg. an empty image in VM, or
a different test setup took place before.

Now one can specify the desired FSTYP in advance and be safe. If unset,
the fallback to TEST_DEV type continues to work.

Signed-off-by: David Sterba <dsterba@xxxxxxx>

- fixed handling of default case, reorder as the last step
- README: mention what's the default if FSTYP is unset
