ext2, ext3 are supported (for quota), reiserfs uses
the same quota system (when patched) so support should
be easy, as soon as the patches are in 2.6

ext2, ext3, reiserfs, xfs, and jfs should be supported
for flags (barrier and iunlink) and xid tagging

well, the xid tagging is basically fs agnostic, and
therefore no problem, but the per context quota requires
the quota system to have more than one quota hash per
mounted partition (one for each context), which seems
not that easy with the xfs quota system ...


PS: patches and sponsorship to port/implement this or
    something similar to xfs are always welcome ...
