It is in include/libxfs.h in userspace, as it is different to the
version that the kernel uses.

btree trace code is the difference here - that needs to be unified
but userspace has different infrastructure right now. Not important
right now.

readahead functions are missing. userspace defined readhead to a
nop, so not a high priority. It should be done, though.

btree trace code again.

Doesn't have the new log readahead verifier support, and doesn't do
the "no inode read on create" shortcut which we shouldn't do in
userspace, anyway. Minor differences, not immediately important.

Oh, uuid/platform_uuid thingy. Will need to clean that up, too, on
the next round of updates.

Not yet split up.
