Re: View/Increasing available inodes on XFS?

I've been looking for a clue to this for a couple of hours now,
and naturally I get a (almost any way) answer shortly after
sending a 'help me please' mail...
This talks about 25%. And the man page:
-m Specify a new value for the maximum percentage of space in
the filesystem that can be allocated as inodes. In mkfs.xfs
this is specified with -i maxpct=nn.
It's extreamly late, so I'm not getting it.
In ext3, the reserved block percentage is 5%, I assume this is the
BUT, in ext3 (if memory serves me right), _root_ can use 100%!
So how come I can't fill an XFS file system to 100%, even as root?
I have a 1.5Gb filesystem, but could only copy files up to 1.1Gb.
Removing a bunch of files, and using dd to fill the filesystem
worked though (well, I could fill almost 1.3Gb before I gave up :).
