The *only* method for turning on quotas on XFS on is to mount the filesystem
with the appropriate mount options. You can turn them off in an on-line
fashion by running the "off" command, but you also need to remove
the mount options from the next mount, otherwise that turns them
back on.

If the word "permanently" is the problem, send a patch for th eman
page that explains it properly.
