Running tune2fs on a filesystem with an unrecovered journal can
cause the tune2fs settings changes in the superblock to be reverted
when the journal is replayed if it contains an uncommitted copy of
the superblock.  Print a warning if this is detected so that the
user isn't surprised if it happens.

At a bare minimum this ought to be "You may wish *to* replay...", but I
suggest:

"You should replay the journal and then rerun this command because it is
possible that your changes will be overwritten by the journal recovery."

Otherwise looks fine to me.
