Yeah, but I didn't see that being called in this path. My question was
basically if we would notice whether the uuid or i_ino value got
scribbled. The verifier looks like it only checks the magic and version
number. Thinking more about it, it probably doesn't matter. If some
field is wrong, chances are the crc is busted. I think the uuid is
actually a v5 only field as well. Finally, the actual ino check in
xfs_verify_dinode() only occurs for v5, so there's no change there
either. Nothing to see here, move along... ;)

mp is a global. That's how it's resolved in set_cur_inode() as well.
That could also be a separate patch, btw. ;) This seems Ok to me with
the minor cleanup above, and we should probably get these fixes in at
some point. :)
