Hi,

I haven't tested xfsprogs in a while, but I just noticed
that mksfs in xfsprogs-2.7.11 on FreeBSD seems to be broken:

% mkfs.xfs /dev/ad0s4

% file - < /dev/ad0s4
/dev/stdin: data


If I revert to xfsprogs-2.6.25, then I get:
% mkfs.xfs /dev/ad0s4

% file - < /dev/ad0s4
/dev/stdin: SGI XFS filesystem data (blksz 4096, inosz 256, v2 dirs)

Any ideas?

any errors out of the newer mkfs? Can you divide & conquer a bit to see when it stopped working? What does the first 512 bytes of /dev/ad0s4 look like with the new code; maybe diff that hexdump against one from 2.6.25? What does the kernel say when you try to mount it? Not sure what should have broken any of this...
