I prefer the original wording. Your suggestion says something about what
XFS can do, but nothing about what it is not allowed to do, which is
rather more important.

xfs mailing list

I see your point. Sounds good to me.


This means no change is needed?

I am okay with what is written about creating inodes.

On a separate question, should something be mentioned that inode32 mode can still read/write/unlink any inode, even those number greater than 32 bit, or will that confuse the inode creation point?
