Well, I probably would've removed the call to rmt_dev, as Tim did
did -- no point having a function called rmt_dev if it doesn't have
anything to do with devices or /dev.

Good.  I assume error conditions such as no space left or insufficient
permissions to write will work too...  Also, it would also be a good idea
to test xfsrestore.  Although, I suppose Tim must've checked this stuff
before checking in the change, right Tim? :)
