I had the same error in the same environtment. The patch that was sent by
Mateusz Guzik and Svyatoslav Lempert is the same. Anyway, Piotr Matuszczyk
has right, this patch only ignores "userquota" and "groupquota" settings in
/etc/fstab. I made a try with this patch and it works for me on 8.0-p2 but
this can't be the final solution for the problem.
The situation is if you have "userquota" and/or "groupquota" options in your
/etc/fstab and you reboot your Freebsd, the error messages will appears but
you can continue the booting process (eg. typeing ufs:/dev/ad0s1a). After
the succesfully boot, your quotas will works fine on the root filesystem
too, you only need to have a kernel with "options QUOTA" and
quota_enable="YES" line in your /etc/rc.conf. This is enough for it,
whatever is in fstab's man page. I don't understand clearly why we need to
put "userquota" and/or "groupquota" options in /etc/fstab but the quota
system will works fine without that settings.
However, the "userquota" and/or "groupquota" options works fine without any
patch or fix on non-root filesystems.
