Summary0000429: Quotas with EXT4 on AlmaLinux do not get enacted on MD-RAID1
Steps To ReproduceI tested an instance in Vmware(with a vanilla installation of AlmaLinux 8.8), and I can confirm that -- for some unknown reason -- I don't need to enable the feature "quota" in ext4.

"dumpe2fs -h /dev/md__" in my Vmware informs me there is no "quota" feature, though "quotacheck -ucm -F vfsv1 /" passes.  And I can then proceed to using "edquota -u _user_" successfully.

I can replicate the same issue again and again with ext4 on md-raid1.

in contrary to redhat's official documentation regarding quotas, the redhat site states that "quota" should be enabled in "ext4".

^ So I suppose this is a bug, because here on AlmaLinux, enabling "quota" as a feature in EXT4(and on MD-RAID1), it is preventing the quotas from working.

Tested with these two forms in /etcf/fstab -- using stock kernel 4.18.0-477.27.1.el8_8.x86_64
form 1)
UUID=__ /                       ext4    defaults,usrquota,grpquota  0 1
form 2)
UUID=__ /                       ext4    defaults,usrjquota=aquota.user,,jqfmt=vfsv1  0 1

and both are successful. (after applying "quotacheck -cmgu -F vfsv1 / , and later testing with edquota -u user)

question: why would "edquota" only work after disabling or not enabling at all "quota" feature embedded into the ext4 metadata?
^ this 100% contradicts the redhat documentation.

please take a look.
