I knew what you mean here, in fact, i did this on purpose.
for this test failure, btrfs-prog did not output failure information from the 
beginning.
So to make older progs can also detect the test failure, i dropped into this 
way.

Anyway, if you don't like this and think  old btrfs-progs needn't consider 
this,  i will update
the patch.^_^

Thanks,
Wang
