still to do. Will come after the ioctls.

almost done. How I'm should I obtain a pointer to an xfs_agf_t from
inside the ioctls?
I guess that the first step is to get a *bp with xfs_getsb and then an *sbp,
but, which function/macro gives me the xfs_agf_t pointer? Sorry, I can't
find the way greeping through the code.

still to be done.
Thaks again for the help.
