If xfs_bmap -vp is run on a file without unwritten extents

So, when -vp option is used, it will always print the
FLAGS column.

I note that it only prints the legend if a flag is set. I guess
this is ok, but maybe it would be more consistent to always
print the legend? Or even to make the legend optional (which
would make dumping more than one file more compact)?

Cheers,

Dave.

The legend* is only shown with an extra -v option and the FLAGS
column displayed. The updated man pages posted out yesterday
documents this.

* I assume the legend you refer to is:
 FLAG Values:
    010000 Unwritten preallocated extent
    001000 Doesn't begin on stripe unit
    000100 Doesn't end   on stripe unit
    000010 Doesn't begin on stripe width
    000001 Doesn't end   on stripe width
