That was my point as well.

I guess that the last time I've proposed to create a separate test that
just tests that these flags are set as expected for a all filesystems
and that test would have the patches that fixed that as a tags set. That
would make it clearer what is wrong and what should be backported.

Once we have that test implemented we can change this test as this patch
