Now role is an int and the RHS of the assignment is le32_to_cpu(...)
which returns a u32. Testing < 0 will *never* succeed on a 64-bit
architecture. This is a kernel bug. If the code is changed so that
role is also u32 and the test is against ~0, it's possible that
different, better things will happen. Please try reporting this to the
I still don't know what wrote that value to the superblock though.
