Until you wind up looking at a problem from some old kernel, or modified
vendor kernel, and you realize that now you really don't know which
error "xfs_iformat(6)" is anymore, and you either have to go digging
through trees that aren't handy, or you just give up and don't bother to
help because now it's too much of a pain. ;)

But I can leave it up to the folks @ sgi, I can see both sides of the
argument, and I won't care too much either way.

Thanks,
