I don't really think it is necessary. SLES 12 is already using CRCs
as the default XFS configuration for filesystems created by YaST, so
the cat is already out of the bag. And, historically speaking,
changing mkfs defaults has never been considered a compelling reason
to do a major/minor version bump so I haven't even bothered trying
to argue for that as I've never been successful in the past...

Cheers,

Dave.
