So how, Eric, would that help, say, SuSE users -- which the XFS website makes
special note to point out that there's a specific agreement in place to
support. Even SLES users vice openSUSE, though the XFS.org website doesn't
make that distinction.
I'm sticking with "those are kernel package versions", and I was yelled
at the other day because I was interested in things that weren't "mainline
kernel versions". RHEL kernels are the *best available example* of "not
a mainline kernel version", so I find these conflicting reports most

"Mainline". Which was not my choice of term.
