XFS has this behavior in its reflink implementation where it returns
ENOSPC if one of the AGs that would be involved in the sharing operation
becomes more than 90% full.  As Kent Overstreet points out, that means
the snapshot creator shuts down when the filesystem is only about a
third full.  We could exercise the system harder by not *forcing*
reflink, which will actually fill the filesystem full.

All these tests are supposed to test the reflink code, how does
using cp --reflink=auto make sense for that?

Hmm.  Well my initial thought was that the snapshot could fall back to
buffered copies of file1 so that we wouldn't abort the test well before
actually filling up the filesystem.

But you're right that my solution smells off -- we want to test reflink
dealing with ENOSPC.  Perhaps the right thing to do is to truncate and
rewrite file1 after a _cp_reflink fails, so that the next time through
the loop we'll be reflinking extents from a (probably less full) AG.

Ok let's see how that does.

Btw, can we please stop sing snaphot in the test description for
reflink copies?  That's a really confusing term to use in this context..

That does sound better.

/me feel confusion too:)

I'll merge other 3 patches of this patchset at first. Feel free to re-send
this patch in another PATCHSET later.

Thanks,
