Hi folks,

This is the latest update of the series of patches tht introduces
CRC support into xfsprogs. Of note, for CRC enabled filesystems;

        - write support for xfs-db is disabled
        - obfuscation for metadump is disabled
        - xfs_check does nothing ("always succeed") so that xfstests
          can run without needing this
        - all structures shoul dbe supported for printing in xfs_db
        - xfs_repair should be able to fully validate the structure
          of a CRC enabled filesystem.
        - xfs_repair still ignores CRC validation errors when
          reading metadata
        - mkfs.xfs enforces limitations on the format of CRC enabled
          filesystems (inode size, attr format, projid32bit, etc).
        - whenever a v5 superblock is parsed on read by any utility,
          it outputs a wanring about it being an experimental
          format.

Bug reports, patches, comments, reviews, etc all welcome.

Cheers,

Dave.
