        Excellent way to leverage a huge body of existing work...

        I'm sure it will flush out more errors in XFS as well,
especially in the more BTRFS specific tests... XFS will just
have to add some more features to fully pass the test suite... ;-)



        BtB, having BTRFS pass the XFS test suite would certainly
make me more confident about trying it out and using it for production
work...but I suppose that's part of the intent!
