  Hum, after testing this I realized why I did the things the original way.
The test writes a message with title for each test so when direct IO tests
are skipped outputs don't match.

After some thought I decided to change the test to output titles only to
full output and keep compared output (almost) empty. Result is attached.

Seems like asking for trouble duplicating the common options.

# ext3 doesn't support direct IO in journalling mode
write_opt_list="iflag=noatime conv=notrunc conv=fsync
[ $FSTYP = "ext4" ] && write_opt_list="$write_opt_list oflag=direct"

Otherwise looks fine.

Patch

Subject: [PATCH v3] Make test 272 work for ext3

ext3 does not support direct IO for files with data journalling. This
confuses test 272. Make the test check whether open succeeds and perform
the writing only if it does.

Thanks for Dave Chinner for suggesting a simpler way to fix the test.
