Ok, there is no other message offering more info, sadly.

I really don't have a good guess at this point..... oh, wait, finally,
a bell goes off:

    xfs: avoid false quotacheck after unclean shutdown
    The commit
    83e782e xfs: Remove incore use of XFS_OQUOTA_ENFD and XFS_OQUOTA_CHKD
    added a new function xfs_sb_quota_from_disk() which swaps
    on-disk XFS_OQUOTA_* flags for in-core XFS_GQUOTA_* and XFS_PQUOTA_*
    flags after the superblock is read.
    However, if log recovery is required, the superblock is read again,
    and the modified in-core flags are re-read from disk, so we have
    XFS_OQUOTA_* flags in memory again.  This causes the
    XFS_QM_NEED_QUOTACHECK() test to be true, because the XFS_OQUOTA_CHKD
    is still set, and not XFS_GQUOTA_CHKD or XFS_PQUOTA_CHKD.
    Change xfs_sb_from_disk to call xfs_sb_quota_from disk and always
    convert the disk flags to in-memory flags.
    Add a lower-level function which can be called with "false" to
    not convert the flags, so that the sb verifier can verify
    exactly what was on disk, per Brian Foster's suggestion.

83e782e went in at v3.11; the above commit hit v3.17, so it was broken
for a while.

I still can't explain the "quota init failed" bit, but the above
probably explains the unexpected quotacheck problem.
