Description Yufang Zhang 2010-05-28 03:23:57 EDT
Description of problem:
For the mke2journal-L, label is limited to 16 bytes. So if you set label longer than that length, it will be truncated. Thus the label set may not be as what you expect. So it is better to add some warning in the help of mke2journal-L to let people know this limitation. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
major: 1
minor: 2
release: 7

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.><fs> mke2journal-L 1024 "1234567890abcdefg" /dev/VG/jounal
2.><fs> get-e2label /dev/VG/jounal

Actual results:

Expected results:
At least a warning should be given in the help to inform people this limitation.
