It's almost stable.
Hopefully I don't want to make any major change on the on-disk
format which affects the compatibility.

Some unsupported features like atime, EA, and ACLs should be
carefully confirmed before merging to the mainline though
I believe they don't lead to the major change.

Yes I know. Thank you for the important advice.
