Any v5 filesystem with reflink and/or rmapbt enabled can be
excluded, as they didn't get added until 4.8 or after. All new
filesystems from here on should at least have reflink enabled, so
just returning EFSCORRUPTED and aborting recovery would be fine for
those filesystems....

OTOH, I think anyone using a 6.x kernel should be using a 6.x
xfsprogs, too, so maybe we should just remove the workaround from
upstream kernels altogether?

We probably should do that, too.
