Hmmm.... I know nothing about Webmin I'm afraid. The quota link
from this web page - http://www.webmin.com/webmin/standard.html -
suggests its a matter of doing some Perl hacking to make this work.
I've CC'd the webmin author - perhaps he can give some additional
pointers. I'm guessing there's an assumption in there that for
quota to be enabled there must be a [a]quota.[user|group] file in
the filesystem root - which is not correct for XFS filesystems.
As a reference, there is a "README.quota" file in xfsprogs which
discusses the differences between XFS notion of quota and the model
used in the two versions of the Linux VFS quota subsystem. Another
reference is the code in the current quota package which implements
support for all three models of quota in one set of tools.
