That was not on purpose ... let's see what happens when I set it to Y.
It has probably been set that way for all CentOS-5 though.  Fedora does
not use DMAPI, so that is why it is off.

It is somewhat newer.  We have started a Project specifically for XFS,
this is where XFS will be upgraded and extended in the future. Please
join it if you want to make CentOS XFS better:

https://projects.centos.org/trac/xfs/

Tru ... how do they join :D

It is not too hard, if you have the plus kernel installed or extracted,
the config file is there as it is in the real kernel.  All you need to
do is run diff in whatever way you like to see the output.

If there is something you would like to have turned on, patches are
accepted.
