  Ah, I was convinced that _require_quota() should check whether VFS
quotas are enabled but apparently it should work also for XFS. So would
test like below be OK?

if [ $FSTYP = "xfs" ]; then
    [ -f /proc/fs/xfs/xqmstat ] || _notrun "Installed kernel does not support 
XFS quota"
    [ -d /proc/sys/fs/quota ] || _notrun "Installed kernel does not support
