OK, I did a fast unscientific test and created xfs filesystems in flat
image files on both amd64 and i386, exchanged the images between the
systems, and I can mount and read them. I can also mount and read i386
and amd64 xfs image files on my alpha. All systems with 2.6.9 kernels.
I unfortunately lack the resources to try it out with real disks,
pre-2.6 and/or pre-sid systems.
