Re: nilfs_cleanerd from nilfs-utils shutdown on version 2.0 and 2.1 does not fail but says nothing and does not clean the old checkpoints nor newer (actually older) ones.

Hmm, this error seems to be caused by a known bug which was already
fixed on nilfs-utils 2.1 with the following patch.

It might be an actual corruption by the kernel code of nilfs2 if you
were using old kernels, but it's most likely due to the bug.

I will backport the fix to nilfs-utils 2.0 series and make another
release of it.

nilfs_cleanerd: fix move block errors with cpfile and sufile

This fixes the following gc error related to cpfile and sufile:

 nilfs_ioctl_move_inode_block: conflicting data buffer: ino=4, cno=0,
 offset=0, blocknr=78648, vblocknr=62283

Blocks of cpfile and sufile should be judged live only if they are
latest, and should not depends on the protection period.
