I'm sorry, but I do not have any XFS design specs or documentation in
my hands. I returned all the documents in my posession when I left
SGI 3 years ago -- even though the XFS ones were technically no
longer confidential. I was relying entirely on my memory when I
posted my earlier comments.

Ok, I have nothing better to do this evening... :)
I'm looking at the earliest XFS design paper I can find,
(Curtis' name is at the top of the authors list)
I do see "xFS" but I do not see "eXtended." (at least not
anywhere near the words "File System."
Dan, if you have a different (older?) version, please forward
it to me - I'd like to add it to our archive of original
