Yep 
(Aside: I normally give a mount-point and not a device - xfsdump
 only works on mounted filesystems. I think if it has a device
 then it uses getmntent() to match with a mnt-pt).

Both the on-disk and on-tape dump formats haven't changed.
We need to keep them constant for compatibility with IRIX and to
allow one to restore old tapes etc...
