I tend to disagree with the 4.0 bump.

2.0 was when the new xattr ABI was introduced, and 3.0 was when we
pulled fsr over from xfsdump to xfsprogs as well as drastically reducing
the amount of installed headers.

While the v5 support is a major internal change I think 3.2 would fit
better for this.

I'd also be tempted to just cut 3.2.0 instead of an alpha version - just
keep the v5 support experimental, maybe under a configure option.
