Oh!  I found some SGI docs that say that XFS doesn't pre-allocate
inodes?  So I guess there is no wasted space?

Then what the heck was df -i reporting to me when it said 644244416
inodes existed?  Is XFS passing df some made-up number or is that the
hard system max?

My first foray into XFS is proving interesting...
