i.e. we skip the test if "-o dax" is in the mount options. We try
not to turn off all mount options, because then we never exercise
any filesystem configuration other than mount defaults, regardless of
what other mount options the tester has specified on the CLI or
in config files...

Why should this be in a "dax" group when the test explicitly turns
off the the DAX mount option?
Right, sorry, this is a bit confusing. We only turn off dax for the scratch
device, but we use the full mount options for the test device. To reproduce
the bug I'm looking for we would like those mount options to include -o dax
(hence the membership in the dax group), but the test runs fine without this
so I didn't want to require the dax mount option for the test to run.
I'll add comments to this effect, and I'll address the rest of your feedback
Thank you for the review.
