The original kernel patch that Dave wrote for xfs_spaceman implemented
FS_IOC_FIEMAPFS ioctl, here is the original fiemap extension patch:


These patches were not posted and were just forward ported to a current 
3.18-rc7+ for-next XFS tree and were pushed to the fiemapfs branch in Dave's
kernel tree at:


The original xfs_spaceman tool that Dave wrote to call the fiemap
interface and make use of it is here:


Dave just updated it to the 3.2.2 code base and pushed it to the
spaceman branch in this tree:


The description of patches in this series are as follows:

1) [PATCH 1/4] xfs: Accounting for AGFL blocks in xfs_spaceman
        This patch adds functionality in xfs_spaceman allowing it to
        account for AG Free List blocks. The previous version of
        xfs_spaceman failed to account for AGFL blocks as they 
        aren't found by walking the free space btrees, so we have to
        walk each AGFL to find them. A new function 
        xfs_alloc_agfl_freespace_map() is added which will walk the free
        extents in AGFL and account for these AGFL blocks by using 
        agf_flfirst, agf_fllast and agf_flcount fields.

2) [PATCH 2/4] xfsprogs: Addition in debug option -d of xfs_spaceman
        This patch allows adding a title for the contents which are
        printed when xfs_spaceman is run with -d debug option from command
        line. The titles added are agno, agbno and len.

3) [PATCH 3/4] xfs: Adding XFS_IOC_FIEMAPFS ioctl for use in xfs_spaceman
        This patch is concerned with the changes made in kernel space code
        for adding a new XFS specific ioctl XFS_IOC_FIEMAPFS in xfs_spaceman.
        This ioctl will replace a file based ioctl FS_IOC_FIEMAPFS, and allow
        us to modify the ioctl as per requirement in the future.

4) [PATCH 4/4] xfprogs: Adding XFS_IOC_FIEMAPFS ioctl for use in xfs_spaceman
        This patch is concerened with the changes made in user space code
        for using XFS_IOC_FIEMAPFS ioctl in xfs_spaceman, which will replace
        FS_IOC_FIEMAPFS and make use of fiemap plumbing.

Comments, thoughts etc are welcome.
