There are two mount options for enabling case-insensitivity

How do I know that I am on an Unicode XFS filesystem. Could I see this
with xfs_db -r -c 'sb 0' -c p <device>? Hmm, nothing unicode related in
there as far as I can see. The fs was created with 2.6.23, mkfs.xfs 2.9.4
and the mkfs options that David suggested.
Good point, xfs_info should report this info.
Do I need to backup / mkfs / restore to switch to one? I understand that
can switch between enable / disable case-insensitivity via a mount
option. Would I be able to enable unicode via xfs_db version command or
something like it?
Strictly speaking you do need to do backup/mkfs/restore to get utf8.
But, with xfs_db hackery and xfs_repair, you can actually switch between
them without mkfsing (I never said that ;) )
Once your filesystem is unicode, ci is a mount option that can be turned
