You were referring to an xfsdump option. What use case did you
have in mind? Compatibility with an old restore?

Yes.

Ok, I can see the value in that if a filesystem is being moved
to another system which has an older xfsrestore.

I'll repost with that change as well as with an option for
xfsrestore to truncate all generation numbers down to 12-bits
as mentioned in my last mail.
