Just in case you were wondering what X stood for in XFS - some folks
out there seem to be putting the X in the middle of words recently.
The X does not stand for anything except X, it is not eXtent, or
eXtended or any other word.
Originally the project was internally refered to as xFS, presumably
until marketing came up with a letter or name which was deemed
acceptable. After a while the x just stuck without having a
meaning assigned to it, and it was capitalized.
Think of it as a little like the G in GNU, the X in XFS stands
for XFS ;-)
