Could we please stop this stupid ext4-centrism?  XFS is ready so we can
put in the syscalls backed by XFS.  We have already done this with the xattr
syscalls in 2.4, btw.

Then again I don't think we should put it in quite yet, because this thread
has degraded into creeping featurism, please give me some more time to
preparate a semi-coheret rants about this..
