Lazy superblock counters was released into mainline in 2.6.23-rc1. Some distros are still running an older kernel (2.6.22 for example) and with the latest xfsprogs, cannot mount a freshly made filesystem with default options.

This patch make lazy counters default back to off now.

Users who have a more recent kernel can easily enable them with mkfs or xfs_admin -c1 (in a patch posted out a few days ago which will be in the same xfsprogs release as this patch).

Lazy counters will default to on again in xfsprogs 2.10.0 (when CI support is released). This should give enough time for distro kernels to catch up.

Barry.
