In order to fit into normal Linux system administration,
XFS needs standard dump and restore programs, not just
xfsdump and xfsrestore, which are incompatible
with the dump and restore tools for other file systems.
dump and restore for XFS need to be supplied no later
than the first production release. They can be based
on xfsdump and xfsrestore, but need to produce tapes
compatible with other dump and restore programs, and have
a matching user interface.

ivanr@melbourne and tes@melbourne are working on the port
of xfsdump and xfsrestore.

current linux dump/restore.
I think a better solution would be to add the xfs ioctl'shat
to the ext2 file system. Not all the xfs_ioctl need to fully work they
to return reasonable default values. That way their need only be one
dump/restore program for linux.
I understand the wish for all dump/restore programs to work the same way
but given the different capabilities of the various unix file systems that
