Thank you.

About the XFS "version" you are mentioning, a small clearer reference 
might be worth.

The initial problem that triggered the need for this patch is seen when 
formatting the partition with xfsprogs v4.x, not necessarily with prior 
versions of xfsprogs.

Searching information about what changed in xfsprogs v4.x, there are 
some references to "XFS v.5". At the same time, this patch mentions 
versions 1/2/3 of XFS node directories. These several not-so-clear 
"version" references could possibly be a source of confusion, if not 
now, then for some users asking questions in the future, or for future 
bug reports.

Could someone please clarify?
