Hey Chandra,

Nice addition to quotas.  Just a couple of comments.

This was a little difficult to follow, suggest rewording a little, something like:

Q_XGETQSTATV uses the passed in value of the requested version via
fs_quota_statv.qs_version to determine the return data layout of fs_quota_statv.

It would be nice to get this information documented in the quotactl(2)
manpage similar to Q_XGETQSTAT.
