2 warnings generated.

The intention was clearly to compare val[0] and val[1] in the two
different fsid structs. Fix it otherwise this function always returns
true.

Thanks for the patch. Subtle bugs that are off by one character have
always been hard for me to spot!

Ouch! Good catch!

It would have been quite hard to catch this with tests as
non equal fsid and equal fid are quite rare in the wild.
I will try to write some test with mounts of cloned loop devs.

Thanks,
Amir.

Thanks for the fix! That's a good catch that would have been pain to debug!
I've applied it to my tree.
